For my Nephews and Ellie

 To my Sterling Boys and Brielle 



I know a lot of time has gone by since you have seen me, just know In my heart you will always be. It’s so sad to write to you as if y’all aren’t here but adult drama fills the air. 


I imagine you all have grown so big and strong, your childhood laugh warms my cold days and our memories together keeps me strong. I know I’m just your aunt but y’all will forever me my Bestfriend’s, the closest thing to my own children and Gods beautiful art. 


I wonder what new things you have learned, what adventures you’ve taken? How many books have you read? Have you watched a good movie? How did you do in school virtually and what little pains you hold in your young heartsπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ


I remember you all being so very smart, and I know your mothers are taking very good care of you. Please be patient with them because this time in life is hard for us all. 


I shed tears writing this poem but it’s been weighing heavy on my mind. The only thought that I had was why did I have to lose you precious jewels in my life.


I see you all so clear in my mind. Jo will soon be 10, Mari 4, and Ellie and Jayden 7yrs old ohhh how the time flies. The last time I saw you Ellie you had to be 5. You boys along with my other nephews will always be my first loves don’t let anyone e tell you otherwise. 


I hope life treats you all well, even as kids I know some days it’s still hard for you to smile. Don’t ever walk in anyone’s shadows, grasp onto your independence, and know the thought of you all continuously puts a sparkle in your Aunties eyes.


Don’t forget our handshake, up high, down low, πŸ‘Š, jazz hands πŸ‘‹πŸΎ


Body’s depart but the essence of love remainsπŸ’—

The Help

Home

He felt like home. Like grandpa’s hugs and granny’s kisses. Like a  school bus ride home, and  evening sunsets. Like afternoon Lunch with your Best-friends. He felt like home. Arms with an instant ease of peace, chocolate lips And a grin so sweet. He felt like ice cream on a summers day. He felt like a sunshine ray , and a Shooting stars runaway. He felt like home He felt like  Twilight, New Moon, and Breaking Dawn. He was was as high as the sky  and as bright as Nebula. He felt like why have I never felt this way before? He felt like a shower after a long day at work, like back-rubs And bath bomb soap . He felt like India’s Aries “Brown skin…  I can’t tell where mines is and where yours begins”. He felt like hopes redeeming  and pains end. He felt like home. Of course felt is past tense. But it’s still memorizing to dream of who we used to be. The trauma that can Happen when direct and in-direct meet. Like I’m saying things I don’t mean Because you act a certai
