What I Can Do

I’m not a seamstress
can’t weave or sew like my grandmother
I’m not an artist
can’t paint or draw like my other grandmother
I’m not an athlete
can’t play ball like my uncle
I’m not a chef
can’t cook gourmet food like my other uncle
I’m not a gardener
can’t make things grow like my aunt
I’m not beautiful
can’t model like my other aunt
I’m not a doctor
can’t patch people up like my parents

But here’s what I can do

I can hold you
I can write the right words
I can love you
