Growing Old

Gabby Ramano

 

7 cousins, Romanos and Waterburys

3 and 4 siblings 

3 boys and 4 girls 

Big happy family 

A pack thick as thieves 

 

Together a lot 

Loving family 

Holidays, birthdays, summers

Hanging out, 

A pack thick as thieves 

 

Loving grandparents 

Spoiling their 7 grandchildren

Disney, the cape, and even each other’s houses 

A pack thick as thieves

 

Every Christmas 

A pageant shall be performed

Every cousin participates 

Whether you are Mother Mary, Joseph, the Angel, or the donkey 

A pack thick as thieves 

 

Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter

Gathered around the kid’s table

Name tags at each plate

Soda in each cup 

A pack thick as thieves 

 

Weddings come and go

Never one of the 7 

Yet they stay together 

Never straying from each other’s glance 

A pack thick as thieves 

 

As years go by

Schedules get busier 

Visitations are limited to holidays 

But we stay together 

A pack as thick as thieves 

 

Lifestyles drifting separate 

Experiences completely different

Yet they tell each other 

And yet some they share 

A pack as thick as thieves 

 

Together again 

On Christmas day 

To pass around presents 

Watch movies

And have fun as a family 

A pack as thick as thieves

 

Celebrate again they shall

Birthday season upon 

Except only a few sodas left 

Glasses filled with wine and beer 

Yet still a pack as thick as thieves 

 

A big party hosted 

Drinks galore 

They stick together though

Help each other out

The young ones now taking care of the older ones 

A pack as thick as thieves 

 

The loss of a legend 

Someone who loved all 7

A role model who broke their hearts

So together they stay 

As a pack as thick as thieves 

 

Rarely seeing each other 

With such different lives 

Yet when together 

Like nothing separates them

Always and forever

A pack as thick as thieves
