Family is a rescue squad in waiting.
One knows there'll be an answer to one's call.
Rest assured there is sufficient love
To water well the wastelands of us all.
Yet simple truths can sometimes bear restating.

Fear not, then, what fortune might befall,
Or what regrets show no signs of abating.
Understand the long-term love that proves
Resilient through the roughhouse of relating.
