I BELONG TO MY FAMILY

This poem represents “the ties that bind.” It was written by Linda to my daughter in 1985. And Linda is the mother of Emily, a long-distance member of the Beanery Writers Group. This poem will be filed in Emily’s folder, WR/V EMILY at this site, the Beanery Online Literary Magazine Vol. 2, where you can read Emily’s submissions.

—written by Linda

I belong to my family as they do to me
There’s an ultimate love there I’ll sometimes not see.
There’s going to be things I won’t understand,
But I know they love me and I’m in good hands.
There will be times when we all disagree
But I know they’re there to protect and guide me.
They love me more than any one will
As I’ll realize when I pay my own bills.
As I diaper
my baby and feed him each day
I’ll care for and love him the very same way.
