What’s the most important thing of all?
It’s sometimes big and sometimes small.
It’s full of girls (or maybe boys)
and makes an awful lot of noise.
A good one sticks together close, and
comes through when you need it most.
It often harbors dogs or cats,
pianos, bikes, and baseball bats.
It stores traditions, truth and love,
prepares you for a life above.
Oh, one more thing … I’m in it. Me!
My most important family.
