Family Tree

If I could choose to be a tree
I`d want you planted next to me
We`d keep each other company
Two better friends you`d never see

We`ll share the moon
We`ll share the sun
We`ll name the stars
We`ll have such fun
We`ll grow until our growings done
We`ll root together, love as one

A tree for you
A tree for me
Bonded in eternity
Of all the things I`d choose to be?
I`d choose you as my family

Ok, so this poem was sparked by a discussion that you can`t choose your family. I say people can and DO choose their family.

In the websters dictionary:

family: Two or more people who share goals and values, have long-term commitments to one another; a person having kinship with another or others; A group of organisms related by certain points of resemblance in structure or development; A group of kindred or closely related individuals
