Heritage

Heritage

Rooted in the lowlands

close by the Baltic Sea,

a family now transplanted

traced through history.

 

Their values and their stories

passed on through the years,

memories and photos

often peppered with their tears.

 

Rubbing shoulders with the figures

in the events of history’s pages,

each generation wrote a chapter

and passed it through the ages.

 

Yet, by time and circumstance,

dreams and plans were foiled,

this remnant of a family

left their native soil,

 

To write another chapter

with what could not be lost,

the treasures of a heritage,

true riches beyond cost.
