Hi My Only Nephew

I long to pick up the phone

To Dial your number

And hear “Hey my only nephew”

But I can’t

COVID-19 stole that from me in April

No longer can I ask for a prayer or hear you laugh

Non longer can I hear how your day or week has been

All of my routines are out of sorts

No more hugs

No more celebrating milestones

Just memories

Every now a then one o or two tears will fall

I’m ok but yet I’m not ok

When I pray I slip and still say your name

Lord if you don’t mind

Wrap your arms around auntie for me

Tell her her only nephew is doing fine

Tell her I miss her

Tell her I’m working on seeing her again
