Strands

A cord bound together 
  by the strands of memories
A child, and then another
  when troubles came and we stood
Together as one against a world
  we are bound by all of these
The times of darkness when we 
  could not find the way to another
Standing alone and frightened
  willing to wait it out til we found
Us again S the slow wait of faith
  in the ties which bound us
The promise to stand even when
  doubting and we came through
A bond of faith, hope, and love
  there is still more of a road to travel
Let's go, let's continue the journey
  to its end, when we shall part
One again with all the memories
  of this tie, bound again by the other
