I woke to a faint cry
I went upstairs to wake my brother and he wasn’t to be found
then I went to make a bowl of cereal.
as I was going down stairs the cry got stronger but this time I heard two people crying. one was lower and one was higher pitch then my curiosity
led me to the TV.
I turned off the TV and silence two bowls of cereal
one for me one for my mom. and I carried it to her
she and my brother cuddling and crying. they said,
my Uncle Tony died.
Two bowls of cereal crashed on the floor. I rushed towards her
and cried in her arms
all of the moments
we had just turning into old memories. I would no longer have him
babysit me and we wouldn’t spend any more time together.
