Family First


Friends may come and friends may go
Family is first and this I know
Putting friends first is a mistake
And not one that you should make

Family’s forever and this I know
Friends enter your life and then they go
Making friends is fun trust me with this
But not something you would miss

Love your family while they are here
Keep their love very near
Family can leave the world at any time
So don’t make yourself feel like slime

Family is here to comfort you
I know your friends do this too
Without your family you would be lost
Hold on to them no matter the cost

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts....
    I agree with you, we should really
    make our family a priority because
    when all else fail, its where you will
    come back... when friends turn their
    back on you, your family will always
    be there to support you. (Report) Reply
