Each time we see each other Iím
Embarrassed to reply
How many years have passed since we
Have talked and wonder why.
O time will not remind me when
I should have used the phone;
Or when I should have driven by
And seen if you were home.
As relatives extended we
Are not each otherís core,
But I should give more effort and
Should try to know you more.
Why is it that we only meet
For marriage and for death?
Why is it that we wait until
Someone has breathed last breath?
ďIt was so good to see youĒ are
Our words each time we part;
But letís do something diffírent and
Begin a brand new start.
Donít think I am too busy,
And I donít have time for you:
Please call if you are near me, and
Weíll find something to do.
Iíd like to see your children
More than twice before theyíre teens;
Iíd like to see your siblings
And catch up on evírything.
The sands of time that slip between
Our fingers canít be caught;
The moments that have passed away
With money canít be bought.
Let us decide from this day forth
To never fade away;
Letís choose to see each other more
While we still have today.
