Always hold your
people close.
Don’t let them
stray too far.
Bear them within,
as a reminder
who you
really are.

Life nudges us
this way and that,
propels us to and fro.
With so much change
it’s not uncommon
to get lost,
you know.

So when you feel
like one adrift,
recall this
saving grace:
Nothing will bring you
home like those
your heart has held
in place.

The ties of love
are powerful,
sweet anchors to
the soul.
Wrap grateful arms
around your people.
Let them
keep you whole.
