Keeps us alive holds us together
Intact no matter weather
Brings sunshine sends away pain
No matter barometer or forecast rain

Holding a hand kissing a lip
Catches you in startle or slip
Darkest nighttime blackest hour
Presence a sparkling meteor shower

Amazing simple hearts connected
Love connections feel respected
Deepest meanings this a source
Wide smile on your face of course

Sense of traction feeling held
Holding together perfect meld
Infinite variety yours for taking
Crosses boundary’s generating

Bridges ethnicity religion race
Underlying lattice our grace
When feeling down alone
Kinship connection gets you home

How do connections sustain and provide solace in challenging times?

How do you reciprocate and what’s the reward?
