Loving Poem about Family

Poem About Contacting Family Members

I wrote this poem when a family member who I had not seen in many years suddenly passed away. When the news reached me, my thoughts went back to our childhood days when we were so very close and how we allow the cares of this world and the busyness of life to separate us. Family is what matters most.

Family Matters

Published by Family Friend Poems July 2015 with permission of the Author.

How often do we push aside
The thought to make a call
To just one family member
Who we rarely see at all?

Do we know if they are doing well
Or married still?
Do we know if someone close to them
Is sick or very ill?

Are we concerned at how much time
Has passed since we last met?
And are we sure we can afford
To sit and just forget?

We should not waste another day
In doing things we'd rather.
Instead, we should reach out once more
Because our family matters.
