The Basic Necessity of Life is Family

Forget the ones who have left you behind because we are the ones who are here to remain

All of us will surround you with the affection you deserve to embrace

Make yourself right at home, your visit is always welcome with extended stay

It may seem that blood is family but that is not typically the case

Loving, caring, and giving is all that it truly takes

You belong to us and I believe this to be true


FAMILY is all you need and all we need is you


Family is all I need in this lifetime

Abundance of people who leave me feeling fine

Many enter in my life from all over the world

I bask in the warmth, often feeling furled

Learning that love, care, and giving is the key

Yes, I have discovered that family is all I need

My family
