                  We are the mothers, brothers, sisters, fathers, lovers,

                  Spiritual confidents, and friends

                  We say, “The best is always yet to be!”

                  And so we travel close, we count the years

                                 And smile….as our song begins to close

                                                     Just like a book the ending

                                                     Comes unexpectedly
