Ode to my cousin

She used to vex me a lot but

She’s now gravely ill, I do my

Best to medicate and feed her

Poorer after separation, eager

To want new connections now

That her father’s truly absent

Not just from her youth but

Also from life, she wants to

Meet him and I pray for her

To get her greeted in Heaven

I prayed for her father to go

To Heaven when he dies and

For her to encounter him again.
