For Chontelle, My Cousin
I can see you grow,
Through my computer screen.
I can text, talk and take time,
To connect to you.
I can see your children growing up,
Reaching milestones every day.
I can share your happy moments,
Comfort you when you’re sad.
I can remember our childhood letters,
We were pen pals for many years.
Now I can see you every day,
At the push of a button.
I enjoy the friendship we’ve made,
Cousins by blood, friends by choice.
Even though we’ve never actually met,
You, I will never forget.
