6. Family Matters
He called his daddy crazy.
He turned and walked away.
His father stood in silence
and thought about the day
he called his old man crazy,
and the things he learned since then.
If the seed is firmly planted
it will stand against the wind.
Family matters sometimes feel so wrong.
In our darkest hour it’s love that keeps us strong.
And it’s the hard side of the mountain
where the strongest timber grows.
Family matters, this I know.
Her mother tries to give her
Wisdom from the heart.
But she just will not listen
and it tears them both apart.
Like her mother years before her
she watched her daughter leave.
With the faith of angels
a mother still believes.
There’s a picture on the mantle.
There’s a smile on every face.
Family all together gathered in one place.
But the camera cannot capture
what the heart can only see.
And it’s the roots in the rocky soil
that raise up the family tree.
