chosen family
when real isn’t really there
family love binds
.
family binds souls
who holds me close in their heart
is my family
.
“Mom” calls me “daughter”
tho she’s fourteen years older
my gray hair, so what !
.
soulful family
thicker is than blood it seems
soul brothers, sisters
.
Baby of group, I am
me and chosen family
all on Medicare !

There are those I call my chosen family that are
much younger than I am ~ the ones I write about
here are my art group in particular today.  One
of the group joked, for so long that I seem like I am
one of her daughters, I call her “Mom”, she calls
me “daughter”.
My children and grand-children all are my family
but live far away.
