Dedicated to our family circle

Families are the treasures of heaven

by G.B. Smith

Dedicated to Ruth Leavett

Like the warmth of a mid summer's night,
I have your love for comfort

Shades of lavender arise from the end
of the day as the sun sets over our world

Our world is one where many hearts
can go in safety and feel protected

Your heart is in pain right now because
of the sad news we got about your sister

Come into the safety of my arms and let
my love be your guardian for tonight

Our world is a complicated one
and without the help from each
other it could die

we are here for each other
that's what families do

With the passing of the night
comes the new dawn of promise
It is ours to treasure eternally

Your love and tenderness are your
angel wings of love and promise

Remembering always
that families are the
treasures of heaven



We got news today that my wife's oldest sister has about two days to live. The cancer has overtaken her frail body. This poem is in respect for the family unit and the faith that we are an eternal family and will be together again. We are most grateful for the atoning sacrifice of our Savior.
