30 Day Letter Writing Challenge; Letter 4 – Sibling

So now is the time
for my brother Hugh

That in the family
is known as hubedoo

It truly is a blessings
that we still have you

After everything last year that
you had to go through

In that short time ago
you were pronounced to die

And it was on God
that we did rely

When the family did
our prayers to heaven cry

To please delay you from
having to say goodbye

Just thinking of it and
how the doctors now say

That only by a miracle
is there any way

You are here in
such good health today

And it’s looking like
you’re here to stay

Declaring that I love you
would be putting it mild

You’ll always be “big brother”
to this younger child

As every little girl knows
our brothers stand apart

And my dearest Hugh
you’re special to my heart
