Tides

We are being pulled
  In many different ways
    First with memories of a time
  Long past, then with new beginnings
Lives joined together 
  Creating the bond afresh
    New possibilities arise
  As old doors close and new open
Lives pulled together 
  And apart, we let go
    In blessing, wanting 
  To fly and make our own way
In a world recreated
  By many, and ours 
    Is the job to give them
  Wings, let them fly
Be there when they 
  Fall with hugs, a shoulder
   All the love with which you
  Were made comes this day
We love you
  So fly high, knowing
    Our live flies with you
  The wind of support to your wings
