 I have a family

They love me dearly

Not rich

But close to such wish


I have sisters

As bright as stars

Love is our cure

Challenges we endure


They say love is like a flood flowing through the streams

I say family is like blood running down my dreams


God gave me sisters

......oups! nearly forgot and a brother

Perhaps or clearly he isn't family enough

Like a half cup of tea

Either as a written speech but never spoken

For he lives in our tounges but absent in our sight


I have a family

Despite the brother that drown  with the atmosphere of the earth

He is still thrown into the love of my family

He is also a family

I talk they listen

I listen they talk


Our social context are different

Yet the force of being the same blood

Makes us to flow on the same flood

I have a family One that i love

Together we are one We fly as a dove
