Poems on Family Love: Celebrating the Unbreakable Bonds of Family

Our family is the proverbial egg that we were hatched from. Everything about who we are, both our nature and nurture comes from our family. Often in western society, we stray far from our family and may not talk to them for years at a time. We may feel that we have nothing in common with them. We may choose to run away from our roots because they are too painful to face. Ultimately however, our past holds the key to our future. If we do not face where we come from, we will have difficulty understanding our present and future.

53 Poems about the Importance of Family

  1. 1. A Family Is Like A Circle

    • By Nicole M. O'Neil
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    What is a family? Each of the first 3 stanzas uses a different simile to explain how deep and lasting the connection between family members is. Similies are figures of speech that expresses a resemblance between things of different kinds, using the word like or as.

    A family is like a circle.
    The connection never ends,
    and even if at times it breaks,
    in time it always mends.

  3. 2. A Grandparent's Love

    • By Tina Williams
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    The memories of childhood are never forgotten and are often in the forefront of our minds.

    It seems like only yesterday
    Our lives were just beginning.
    Your love for us never failed,
    Our hearts continually mending.

  5. 3. The Blessings Of A Big Family

    • By Jennifer L. Sylvester

    How wonderful and special to be part of a big family that lives harmoniously.

    The blessings of a big family

  6. 4. A Tribute To Family

    • By Michelle A. Moran
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A family starts with only two, and if they're lucky and work hard, they can create something magical called a family.

    I don't know when it started,
    Or how it all began,
    But God created families,
    As only our Lord can.

  7. 5. Family

    My poem demonstrates the importance of family. Sometimes we take them for granted without even realizing it. They are the ones who are there when no one else is. No family is perfect, but they were given to you for a reason. So saying "I love you" more often can soften a difficult day, and a little hug can go a long way in expressing a heart of gratitude toward those you love.

    God gave each of us a special family
    that we can call our own.
    A family that loves us for who we are
    so we would never feel alone.

    Who can you really turn to when the chips are down?

    When you feel like breaking down or crashing in,
    Who do you turn to, to forgive your sin?
    When you cried your lonely tears,
    Who will be there to fight your fears?

    A girl writes a poem about her family: her father, mother, and brother. They were and are each there for her in different ways, and knowing that is a great source of comfort and support.

    The one who knows the blessings and support of a family lacks nothing.

    The love of this family can show the work of God

    To lend a hand or mend a broken heart.

    Look in the person's eyes who you love. What do you see?

    You can see all in a person's eyes.
    Their pain, guilt, happiness, sadness, fear.
    It's all there, if you just take the time to look.
    In your eyes I see someone unlike any other,

  14. 12. Family Matters

    I wrote this poem when a family member who I had not seen in many years suddenly passed away. When the news reached me, my thoughts went back to our childhood days when we were so very close and how we allow the cares of this world and the busyness of life to separate us. Family is what matters most.

    How often do we push aside
    The thought to make a call
    To just one family member
    Who we rarely see at all?

  16. 14. My Siblings

    • By Ekta Sharma
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2011

    This poem is all about the undefined love which I receive from my siblings. I have one elder brother and one elder sister. Both are like a role model for me. Now we live apart from each other, but each day brings the thought to return to childhood and live with my siblings. I love them very much and hope they always climb the staircase of success. The care they have for their youngest sister is amazing.

    Life is passing so quickly,
    Dreams are proliferating so rapidly,
    But in the middle of all these,
    Memories are embracing so tightly...
