Family Pictures On The Wall


The family pictures on the wall
Some are short others are tall
so many pictures hang right there
Along with the memories they do bear

Those pictures are hanging right there
For all the rest to come and share
So many stories they trigger on
And the stories go on and on

There is Granny sitting in the chair
Knitting with her needles with love and care
As she sits there and rocks along
Rocking and just humming the same old song

Then there's dad carving a piece of wood
Making it fit just like it should
Fixing some furniture that's antique
But when he's done it will look unique

While mom's in the kitchen baking a pie
Making me a rhubarb I won't lie
Then turns to the dishes until it's time
When she's done they will shine

They raised eleven of us kids
Through some hard times that's no fib
Now we're all grown out with kids of our own
While they watch down from Heavens thrown

Yes so many pictures on the wall
But the memories I treasure most of all
The times we spent together both good and bad
Yes we had a blast with mom and dad

TO SOME WE SEEM LIKE A FOOL
BUT OUR WORDS OF POETRY
IS JUST OUR EXPESSION TOOL
