Grandmother to Isaiah in the time of COVID                  

I began to write about

the losses

what hasn’t been

doesn’t happen

but words didn’t come

no

I am enriched by this child

this gift

he is with me

inside me

I hear his giggles without hearing

I feel his skin without touching

my love reaches him

because he is my grandson

my grandson

we will find our own way

we are one

soul to soul

a direct unbreakable line

spirit to spirit

core to core

never will I leave him

that is not possible

we are

and ever will be
