Meeting New Cousins
It was the end of the day; the game had been fun
For winners and losers, we were all family now.
Today's marriage of our favorite grandparents
Set today's mood, a strong bond of communion and love
Here are both sets of grandchildren, enjoying a free trip to Hawaii
Celebrating the happiest new couple who wed in their eighties.
We knew it would be great. We had told our parents this.
Some had listened. Others had been dubious.
Had they opened their hearts?
We were trying to find a good place to play one last game of ball
On the beach where people we love had wed this morning.
We are all family now, one for all and all for them.
The sundown is bringing us optimism and hope.
