Cherish your family for the rest of your days,
Do something for them in your own special ways.
Send them flowers or a present too,
Do anything that you don't have to do.
Keep them close to your heart at least when they die,
So you will remember exactly where they once lay.
And make sure you never lose what you feel,
Because your feelings are what make them so real.
Have been making an 18th birthday for my Granddaughter. I have a large family that is very close to each other and this poem was exactly what was needed for our family page. Thank you
Cherish Your Family
