There was a time in my life when I had friends, quite a large amount;
The fun we had, the times we shared, were more than I could count.
But now that I have grown up, it seems to me these days,
That all those people and myself have gone our separate ways.
Some might look at this with sadness and say I’m now alone,
However, that would be inaccurate, because of what my life has shown.
You see, now I have new company to replace my long-lost friends,
And the bond I share with these people – nothing will transcend.
The ones that I refer to are my children and my wife,
More commonly called my family, but I call them my life.
Yes, it’s true, unlike most friends, we are bound to each by blood,
And my love for them washes over me like an uncompromising flood.
They accept me and they love me, too, despite my many flaws,
So, to me, of all the friends I’ve known, they’re the truest of them all.
I tell you now, I tell you sure, better friends I’ll never make,
Than the ones I call my family – it’s a bond I’ll never break.
