We're all here for a family reunion . . .




Here we are . . . gathered together again . . .
on this . . . our Reunion Day.
Reminiscing and laughing and crying . . .
about all of our yesterdays.

Those special times . . . we vow ne'er to forget . . .
as the years . . . how they seem to fly.
And our precious loved ones . . . so sorely missed . . .
as one-by-one . . . they have said, "good-bye."

But for now . . . I believe they are with us . . .
and if we could hear them . . . perhaps they would say,
"May the circle once again be unbroken . . .
on this . . . Our Reunion Day."

And as we travel on . . . through life's unknown days . . .
may we anticipate that day up in Heaven,
When we'll all gather 'round . . . and once again hear them say . . .
"We're all here for a Family Reunion!"


P.S. I vaguely remember being inspired to pen these words by something I read . . . somewhere. While Googling parts of the above poem, the poem posted > HERE < is the only thing similar that came up.
