The Most Amazing Little Boy

Updated on May 16, 2017


The machine replays your message over and over again

"Hi Mom this is your first born and his first born"

"Hi Grandma, it's Usei", beep

I always let it go to voice record

I play them over and over again sometimes at Nights

When thoughts of you bring tears to eyes wizened with age

Dark, saddened eyes that come alight when your voice registers

My smiles have gotten less

I can hear the changes in your voice

My Usei

The very heart of me cries out at the injustice

At the injustice that would have you live so far from me

To see big gray eyes

The shape just like your Fathers

And his forefathers

Cheekbones chiseled tells of your African Ancestry

Nose so like your Grandmas

That wrinkles when you smile

Grandma this is Usei, beep

I'll always let it go to voice record

I listen each Day to your message and sometimes they make me smile

For my Grandson, when he was born, had big gray eyes, possibly from his Mothers lineage. He couldn't pronounce his first name very well as a Baby. I took creative liberties with the flow as he grew the color of his eyes changed.
