MY HEART

You’re not my flesh and blood my friend
But you live in my heart,
For in you lives a special flame
That I’ve seen from the start

You keep it to yourself a lot
But every now and then
You let it out to play
But we don’t know just where or when

I am the last one of my tribe
Yet I would have you see
That now for many years
I’ve come to call you family

Just know that every time you shine
You make the gloom depart
You’re not my flesh and blood my friend
But you live in my heart
