Family Values

By Makenna Adams

I just called to talk

I just called to laugh

I just called to hear your thoughts

I just called a day and a half

Time flies by when I’m with you

Time seems to know no end

Anything is fun with you

Anything, my friend

You still smell like chocolate

You still like the beach

You still have that locket

You still always reach

For the stars

For success

For what’s far

For the best

Your kindness knows no bounds

Your empathy; no limit

Your quick mind is profound

Your sky; the limit

They say it’s immediate family who are the closest friends 

They say it’s cheaper by the dozen

They say it’s parents and siblings who are best connected

I’d say it’s my cousin
