Tick Tock Goes the Family Clock

When I am asked

what makes me tick

there is one thing

that comes to mind real quick.


My family.


My family is always there for me

my family keeps me sane

my family also makes me crazy

especially my Aunt Jane.


So tick tock goes the family clock

they're here to stay

even though some die

and have to go away.


Family is forever

no matter who you are

they'll always love you

they think you shine like a nighttime star.


So what do they mean to me, you ask?


Well that one's quick,


They love me so much

This is why I tick.
