Family Cake

by Faith Trekson

A family is like a cake
To nourish body and soul,
To satisfy and satiate,
To keep us healthy and whole!

Each family has its recipe,
A unique and precious blend,
Of their own ingredients,
A mix that will not end!

Most recipes will include some nuts,
(That sweet and special kind!)
They pop up every now and then,
But no one seems to mind!

For every family, like a cake,
Has its own traditional taste,
In right proportions, iced with love,
No love goes to waste!

So here's the time to have your cake,
and you get to eat it too!!
For you're a special ingredient,
Its tasteless...without YOU!
