It's hard to believe that we can have first cousins that we have never really met.I know there will be tomorrows but I wish I could have had the chance at all the yesterdays we've missed. I still wish we had grown together and had the opportunity of knowing each other as kids, teens and young adults. I wished we had shared the happy times in our lives as well as been there to comfort each other through the sad times.So here's to you dear Felix, I'm really looking forward to meeting you for the first time. I am looking forward to filling in so many missed yesterdays.


All The Yesterdays, We've Missed

Here you are in the mist of my computer,
No longer a stranger, but where you belong,
Someone I wish I had known my life,
 Now all the yesterdays, we've missed are  gone.
We'll start a new beginning,
 A new beginning, become a close friend,
With all the tomorrows ahead of us,
We'll make sure  that there is  no end.
What were you like as a kid, as a teen,
How did you do in your school,
Were you in sports, did  girls chase you,
I picture you now, I know you were cool.
Did you go to the dance,  a girl on each hand,
Did the guys envy you, for your way,
Were you shy, or quick and witty,
As you grew with each passing day.
I know all the yesterdays, We've missed,
I should let it go, forever let it be,
But I can't seem to accept the fact,
That my family, was kept from me.
I feel I've been cheated, I feel denied,
For I can't turn back the time,
I can't get the years that I've missed,
Can't get the thought out of my mind,
We are cousins, I know we'll be friends,
There's nothing to get in our way,
Now that we've met on the computer,
We can chat almost everyday.
We'll make up for all the yesterdays,
We'll make up with tomorrows each day,
We'll become closer each time we chat,
And let nothing get in our way.
We'll grow as we get to know,
Things about each other's life,
Sharing information about family,
Me of my husband and you of your wife.
I'll share little secrets that family only know,
And you'll share some with me,
We'll fill in all the yesterdays, gone,
Just you wait and see.

Wow...for a change I am speechless well at least for a moment.
It has been a wonderful new experience for both of us and your sister Lina as well. Not only to get to meet you both again after so many years but to also invite you both to share what we all hold so dear in common...our writing. It pleased me so to see you both join my other family here on AD. Now as the months fly by and your planned trip to Nova Scotia to visit with my own little family nears I look forward to it with pleasure. Thank you for the lovely poem and for being you we share the same bloodline and the same passion for life.
