Seven months

Two brothers, got the call 
from the girl
whose picture they each kept taped to the wall.

She wanted her mom to be there, he said
when the baby was born
But he couldn’t be away from his baby girl
So she stayed.

She wanted her mom to be there, he said
when the baby was born
But he couldn’t be away from his baby girl
So he went.

Two brothers, so proud
of the girl
whose picture they each keep taped to the wall.

Every year her world gets bigger.
Every year her world gets smaller.
