Letter to My Big Sister

I-Miss-You-Big-SisterISO YAWI

Written for my nieces Fidelyn and Shamalyn

Dear Big Sister
I write this letter to tell you
About my world

It all began
In a little young a soul
Yes, my soul

Deep fear and sadness arise
It filled my vessel with anxiety
Like a mist watering the earth

My young mind overworked
Dawn and twilight
Thoughts spiraled and spiraled

I fought with tears and thoughts
Thoughts of blessings
Thoughts of omens
Thoughts of whatever

All in one tiny soul’s mind
Sleepless nights
When will this stop?

Memories of good and bad
Mama’s love
Papa’s care
Cannot be erased in me

Though, papa and mama are now gone
Where is the love? Big sister
I missed you deeply
There’s only two of us now

I cannot face it alone
Oh, big sister
I love you more
Like how uncle loved me

I want to share with you this love
I need your comfort big sister
So, I can rest in tranquil

Till I see tomorrow unfold for us.
