Warming love

Though for some

this is not the case,

for me the coming of

family together at

special times of the year

is a sweet aged liqueur

sipped and enjoyed

in the warm hugs

and the smiles of hello

and the vital conversations

dripping with thickly coated love.


For this is family together,

and it warms me like

too much sweet liqueur,

but I drink and drink,

for tomorrow they will

be gone back to their

lives and the special times

will be over till the next time

when we sip together again

this precious sweet and warming love.
