Family Reunion

coming together again after the numerous days of pleasure and pain after the tragic and magical events and the seasons of change we peer into each other’s eyes without knowing what we’ve truly endured or who we really are or how we honestly feel and face this moment with smiles handshakes and hugs with simple words about the difficult things sharing memories and stories of then that bring the laughter and crying of now we remember and speak of those who are gone how they were and if they were still here while trying to embrace each other the ones who still experience departure

doves on the roof
some stay
some fly away
