For Chontelle, My Cousin

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.
