Ode to a Cousin

Location

Something is wrong

You’re so far away

Not for too long

You’ll be here to stay

 

Joined by mothers

You are like a sister

Though we can act like brothers

And sure cannot whisper

 

We think so alike

Even though you are older than me

We still share the same likes

But you sure ain’t taller than me

 

We will be together

Sooner than we think

Your presence is a pleasure

I just gave you a wink

 

Separated for now

But there ‘til the end

Although I’m not sure now

More than a cousin, you are my best friend
