Stand By Me

When they back you up no matter what

When they trust your words have weight

When they insist you are one of their own

When they help you buy THE wedding gown

And spend forty minutes lacing up the back

If they fight over what your last name is

When they invite you in at midnight

For a much needed cry and a good hug session

When they make you laugh and lift you up

When they cancel their plans to help with yours

That's when it's time to take a close look

And evaluate who your family really is

And who will stand by you always

Those should be the chosen ones.
