Family Ties

 
FAMILY TIES

Is it best
when leaving the nest
to no longer be
from the family tree?

When you marry
do you no longer carry
those in your heart
from whom you were a part?

It can be lonely
when it’s just me only.
So, Brother, remember
I’m still a family member.

Please, give it some thought,
as you tie the knot.
