People Who Are Like Family



There are a few people not kin, but close to me

These are people I love like family

They are people who are kind and sweet

And people I was glad to meet

I’ve known them all for several years

And shared with them happiness and tears

You are one that I’m talking about

The words are evident within and without

You’ve been a friend and a loved one too

There are so many things I’ve shared with you

To me your friendship and love has been a pleasure

And a memory that I will have many years to treasure

I won’t forget you and hope you won’t forget me

And together we’ll thank our Father for letting this friendship be
