Dear Cousin (Poem)

Dear Cousin,

It’s almost a year since you passed away,

I saw you in my dream, cousin,

My heart still breaks even though it’s almost a year since you passed away,

It breaks more because of your four children, cousin.

 

What am I supposed to do, cousin?

There’s a fear that your kids are going to have a really hard life,

Do you remember how hard your life was without your parent’s, cousin?

Cousin, how can you leave your kids with a harder life?

I wish there was something I could do, cousin.

 

Our cousins say your kids are fine,

Cousin, are they really fine?

Cousin, can you show us if your kids aren’t fine?

Give us a sign if your kids aren’t fine,

Please don’t let us be blind if your kids aren’t truly fine.
