"My Treasure - poem" Reed family story
by- Patsy Jo Reed Sircy
Linked by intertwining BRANCHES,
Growing on a FAMILY TREE;
Through summer storms, and avalanches,
I stood by them, they stood by me!
My COUSINS wandered all the Earth,
Seeing sights, and in search of GOLD;
Discovered the TREASURE of Life's TRUE WORTH,
Paths that led HOME, FAMILY to HOLD!
Our TREE grows heavy, with thickest BLOOD,
From the TAPROOT to the smallest TWIG;
We've weathered illness, fire, and flood,
TOGETHER, WE STAND, STRONG AND BIG!
When the WORDS are all written, and we all meet Up There,
When we each bring some pictures, and a smiling face,
When the COUSINS are gathered in from everywhere,
Say, "ALL's RIGHT with the World, and GOD's in HIS Place!"
