The Good Family


The handsome father, polite mother and beautiful children,

The perfect split level ranch and manicured lawn,

Church on Sunday and a visit to grandmother,

A good family…..


A teacher, a homemaker, respectful kids,

A dog and a willow in the backyard,

A green lawn requiring hours to mow,

A good life…..


A broken heart,

An education, a move away.

A job and a different choice,

A disappointed family……


A boy to hold dear,

A failed attempt and a determination to do better,

A deep breath and long days,

A new way of being.
