The Company I Keep©

Some near, some far
Some young, some old
Some walking, some rolling
The Company I Keep is mesmerizing
Some rich, some poor
Some good, some bad
Some just meant to be left behind
The Company I Keep are all shapes and sizes
They ask for nothing, but I give them something
They live hard, they play hard, but they weep softly
They live for the moment, pressure in hand
They fight for what they believe in
They fight each day to stay alive
The Company I Keep can’t be replaced Some rich, some poor
They can’t be bought or sold
They are my friends, they are my family, they are all just like me
