Status update from the cousin

Who just got married

Marriages and funerals

Births and break ups

It whizzes by as I scroll down

Looking for an update

From a friend that lives

As I read about lost loves

Then tears again

as I see my cousin’s baby

Just as I think God’s ready

To take us all home

A friend gets pregnant
