Rispetto Style

My little cousins

My heart trembles when I see
you, my little cousins growing up so fast
Best friends we will always be
just like now and in the past

I can’t stop the naughty time flying
But to build a bridge of memories I’m trying
So that the connection that we have together
Will be the same now and forever

    For writing poetry of different kinds
    Oh, so much I had been yearning
    From my teacher Marinela’s lines
    Yes, about types of poetry I’m learning

    Keep on writing, with so much to tell
    At this young age you are writing so well
    I will keep visiting and reading you
    Hey, dear do keep on inspiring me too…
