Family Matters

By Martha Anderson

How often do we push aside
The thought to make a call
To just one family member
Who we rarely see at all?

Do we know if they are doing well
Or married still?
Do we know if someone close to them
Is sick or very ill?

Are we concerned at how much time
Has passed since we last met?
And are we sure we can afford
To sit and just forget?

We should not waste another day
In doing things we’d rather.
Instead, we should reach out once more
Because our family matters.
