Grandmother’s Valentine

It’s so obvious we’re just one
Unending family the world
And me I know you feel
It’s true of you and everyone
After a certain point in life
Despite the crazy arguments
Of our insane uncles not even
Comedy can survive
But continues anyway
The pride in war at war
With the young mothers
Of the world the cousins
And aunties the grandmothers
Who stay for long story-telling visits
Even after they’re gone
