Family Anthem

Published: June 2011

She's there for comfort
When life is too much.
He's there at your back
When fight it you must.

Oh brother, oh sister
Oh cousin, oh dear
Oh mother, oh father
Let's drink, we're all here!

Sisters or brothers
Cousins or friends, with
Those you call family
Make always amends.

Oh brother, oh sister
Oh cousin, oh dear
Oh mother, oh father
I'm glad we're all here!

Mother and father
Wife, husband and child
Keep your heart open
Your soul keep beguiled.

Oh brother, oh sister
Oh cousin, oh dear
Oh mother, oh father
Let's laugh, we're all here!

For its when you need them
They'll always be there
Love from your family
No Love can compare.

Oh brother, oh sister
Oh cousin, oh dear
Oh mother, oh father
Let's sing, we're all here!

My dad left 2 months after I was born. I remember him coming to my first sports day and I wanted to hug him but my mum forbid me. I'm 12 now and still haven't seen him. I'm hoping to find him one day before I finish secondary.
