Relative Poetry

With them you are supposed to relate,
Let your emotions with them be elate.
Visit them when they are sick,
Make them your life’s closest pick.
A father, an aunt or brother,
And others of the blood – these are special,
not some other.
Call on them frequently,
You will surely see the rewards consequently.
Consider them as your partners in life,
They are your worthiest supporters in every strife.
Charity and love begins at home,
Do not make your utmost care reside in someone
else’s dome.
Love your relatives as you would love your self own,
In their hearts the seeds of your love must be
permanently sown.
When the world deceives you,
Your relatives ear will make your joy renew.
Your own are your own,
Engrave their mark on your flesh’s stone.
