Family Matters

by Fire Legend

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
