Mum knew it was coming
busy and frustrated she was at the laungry
and the sudden feeling of guilt
that just bombarded into her.
Little after-school children
hustling and packing their bags
jerked loudly but sadly
I could hear nothing.
The overture was performed
before an orchestra unveiled
the cacophony of unpeace
urged daddy to quicken his pace home.
Grandma gathering her grandchildren
sitting beside the warm fireplace
exhanging cups of hot chocolates
they quietly listened to the folklores.
Of World War and ancient heroes
the atmosphere was shattered
the adrenaline gushed out of nowhere
it piereced through the silence.
Grandpa rocking in his comfy chair
overlooking the droplets on the window
enjoying his newspaper by the fireplace
with a seep of Brazilians’ coffee.
Potato salad and grilled chickens
warmly served on the dining desk
with great affectionate and care
despite the torrential pour out there.
Despite all challenges you face
Sit together and enjoy a feast
Toast away all your worries and stress
Grin widely and be thankful of the dinner
There is a place for everyone
A place you would feel the warmth within
If and only if you and me play our roles
Home – a place like no others.
A family is a heaven in nature. Treasure it or you’ll loose grabs of it.
