Ode To The Johnsons

Oh, Johnson's how very fun you are;
we wish to be so close, but alas we are so far


The Lord has given true friends in parents, sister, brothers;
and we thank Him of this often, that we love one another


Thank you for your friendship made most apparent;
reaching out in simple ways when many others daren't


Each minute spent with you is one that we do treasure;
and there are many others that also do us pleasure


The kid's all get along, the quiet, bossy, wild;
spending time together makes each a very happy child


To watch our children grow together had been a special gift;
I want to savor every moment for it goes by so swift


This visit was most welcome, the time spent oh so pleasing;
knowing that we'll see you again made the parting more appeasing


Although parted once again, we'll think of you quite often;
remembering days playing in the sun can make separation soften

Though many miles distance us, our skies do share same stars;
we still wish to be so close, and alas we're still quite far

We will miss you!
