My Family Wreath
 
My family's like a circle,
A wreath we weave through time,
A garland made from leaves of love
We twist and weave and wind.
 
With coiled and braided branches
Bound firmly to each other,
The garland of my family’s love
Gives strength to one another.
 
Though storms may blow upon us,
Our limbs are strong and tethered,
They hold us in a sphere of love
And bind us all together.
 
Lord, bless us with your spirit
And through our branches weave,
Til all may see your goodness
In this, our family wreath.
 
For my family,
Christmas 2007
