Hurdle Nine
by Julie Boden

I met my husband here in Coventry
his photo’s there and over here you’ll see
John, Bernadette, Annette and Beverley,
she only lives one minute’s walk from me,
Four of our own… fostered my sister’s two,
they lived with us a while to help them through.
I had nine siblings in my family.
How many of us left now? Only three.
Time goes so quickly… in a blink… You’ll see!
There’s nothing like the love of family.
