Once intimate names you were taught to whisper before sleep,

Spiritually assisting the adults in yr family

To be safe,

Now have lived through to be distant relations.

Except when you & Unicef wave to them Xmas.


Now, when this family of one

Finally writes to him,

I doubt it’s not without

Very late night kind innocent prayer

    Last line – what a way to finish the twist in this poem. Loved it.
