The Bond repost

Updated on April 16, 2011

The Bond

 If the question is what is a family
I’m sure that you all agree,
Understanding, love, and respect
To create lasting harmony

But to me It’s not that simple,
There must be more than that.
In a world that is so complex,
That answers rather flat.

My family is more like a puzzle,
Or a child’s model kit.
Whenever a new piece brought in,
My Mom would make it fit.

For my Mom has always been the glue,
That bonded all the pieces.
From every new, strange son in law,
To nephews, and the nieces.

She kept a vigilante watch on us,
With the love straight from her heart.
And carefully glued pieces back in,
When the puzzle fell apart.

And even though the glue has left,
And from this world departed.
There is no thinner strong enough
To break the bonds she started.

      FAR OUT!! Your Mother must have been busy, busy, busy! I'm not certain why that just got written, but would you let me know if I'm right? What a tribute. I'm glad that the glue is strong enough to hold,even after Mom has gone. I think of my mother and the "glue" that she had. Thanks Mom. Thanks "HEAVYM46"

      A lovely testament to your mother, and the love she sowed within her family.
