For Betsy

Tags: birthday, cousin,

A short birthday poem for my recently acquainted cousin.

For Betsy


We are strangers, but remarkably familiar.

We are separated, but strangely connected.

We are parallel lives, that once were as one.

Finally reconnected after wasted years apart.



In all that time, nothing more than a photo.

A beautiful young lady, her sweet smile shining through.

Even as a young child, held close to my heart.

Never forgotten but sadly never known.



Overjoyed our lives have finally crossed.

Though sad for the years that have passed.

Pleased for our ancestors, keeping their family kindred.

Thankful for achieving a young child’s dream.  



Hopefully, one day, we’ll finally meet.
