FAMILY OF ONE

There is a ride we all are on…a journey we accept habitually

A ride inherent in our DNA…a journey called…family.

 

We’re strapped in when we’re born…there are no height and weight restrictions…

Along the way we search for truth…but we don’t mind a little fiction.

 

The journey can be a comfort…sometimes it can be an ordeal

as it takes us up and down and over and under…through every emotion we can feel.

 

We experience births and deaths..we weep, we laugh…as we travel around each bend…

We feel sorrow we hope will pass quickly…and joys we wish will never end.

 

We are elated and we worry…as each peak and valley we try to weather

and we take comfort knowing there is a bond of love the holds us all together.

 

We never know what emotions we’ll be feeling…as we take this ride day to day…

for this is family journey

This is the journey we’re on…

and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

 

And we pray for the day the world realizes…

this journey could be so much easier

so much more fun

If we choose to ride together…

 

together…

 

as a family of one.
