Hearts united in love,
Enlightenment from above,
The conversation never stops on time.
A daily dose of fun,
To combat all the glum,
The laughing always prompts a pretty smile.
Tired after a long day’s work,
Our duties we did not shirk,
A tired family makes for peaceful, happy hearts.
A simply child’s lullaby,
A hymn, a poem, make us wonder why,
We ever wanted more than just a little time.
Time spent with family, with friends, and kin
The quiet moments, the laughter, the ruckus and din,
All make for a rewarding, happy life.
The paychecks come and go,
And we enjoy making dough.
Yet there is nothing more sublime,
Than a little family time.
