Ebb and Flow

Things have calmed down
She's gone back to her room
And an uneasy truce
Rests upon us

Family tension
The rough and the smooth
At times
It could almost be Christmas

Life's never perfect
But sometimes it is
Just a message
And the struggle is worth it

Relationships change
With the passing of days
As we take it turns
To be children

The heart and the head
Both search for the truth
We hope in the end
We can know them

In years from now
They will look back
And think of all the things
They learned from us

The Ebb and the flow
As we struggle to know
The knowledge of love
That will heal us
