Great People in My Life

My mother, whom I still can call any day. My grandparents all long-since passed away. My dad, deceased, I hardly got to know. My stepdad who sadly died years ago. My daughter and her family so great. My son, his wife and kids- all out of state. Dear brother Dale who left this world too soon. Fun Aunt Joan who passed away last June. Church folks, old friends, and students I have known. Peers from then and now with whom I’ve grown. My sister Jenny, such a loving one. My second sister Mel who is such fun. Third sister Dori, from her ex now FREE. Baby sister Thea – health nut like me! Cousins, aunts and uncles, most still alive. Nephews and nieces who by now all drive! My friends in poetry who mean a lot. Closest and sweet friends that I still have got. Old boyfriends of my youth -(wonder where they are!!) and my hubbie Joe who’s a super star. March 17, 2021 for charles messina's List With A Twist Poetry Contest
