Love Song to a Family

Tomorrow morning if you wake up
And the sun does not appear,
I will be here.
If in the dark we lose sight of love,
Hold my hand and have no fear,
'Cause I will be here.
I will be here when you feel like being quiet;
When you need to speak your mind,
I will listen.
And I will be here when the laughter turns to crying;
Through the winning, losing, and trying, we'll be together,
'Cause I will be here.

Tony DiNozzo loves team Gibbs. And not in the way the word love gets thrown about, but in the deepest, most sincere way. It's not as if they are his family, they are his family.
He loves them each in their own way - the respect he holds for Gibbs and Ziva, the protectiveness he feels for Tim and Abby, and the fond amusement he nurses for Ducky and Jimmy.
These people matter to him more than any one else in the world.
Sometimes he forgets to show that.
Sometimes they forget to see.
But it's always there. Tony would do - has done - anything and everything for this team. He's risked his life, his career, his heart, all in the name of family.
Sometimes he wonders if they feel the same way.
Sometimes he knows they do.
This team, this family, has laughed together, cried together, been to hell and back, and all the while, Tony has come to love each person more.
Sometimes he wonders what keeps this team together.
Other times he knows - it's love.
