Family ties are precious things,
Woven through the years,
Of memories of togetherness,
Of laughter, love and tears.
Family ties are cherished things,
Forged in childhood days,
By love of parents, deep and true,
And sweet familiar ways.
Family ties are treasured things,
And far though we may roam,
The tender bonds with those we love,
Still pull our hearts toward home.
