Emily M Lyman Foundation

Family is love
A rustle in the heart
A sweet and wordless hum
Like crickets in the dark
The smell of bacon frying
The slap of cards on wood
All are firm reminders
Of what my family has withstood
A flash of golden sunlight
A flower in the breeze
The simplest drop of water
Is a gift to my family
My family accepts everything
And loves when things are new
And if you wanted it
I’m sure my family would accept you.
