Ties That Bind

Ties That Bind

© Michael Baughman - 2010

There was a boy many years ago
There was a girl that he loved so
Like their parents once did, the two became one
Out of that love I am their son

[chorus]
These are the ties that bind
They are what keeps us whole
The bond is found in the blood
That joins each soul to soul

Looking back as a kid, our house was full of joy
The love and the laughter, made for a happy little boy
As the years went by and I began to grow
You were there to teach me the things I would need to know

[chorus]

I became a man many years ago
I found a girl that I love so
Like our parents once did, we became man and wife
Now we have two little girls to share our life

[chorus]

The memories and reflections, that I have of you
Will be my guide, to help me know just what to do
We’ll raise our girls and only time will tell
If I do half as good as you did, then I’ll have done well

[chorus]
