In the absent of their mother and father.
To my assumption she must have said….
“Go to sleep my little brother,”
“As you await for mother and father”
“When you’re awake, there’ll be food to sooth your hunger”
“Yes, I know you do, because I feel the same way too”
“But you must, and try your best; both, you and I need a bit of rest…..”
This is Love from one to another, a tender cares from a Sister to a Brother.
In the distance, I can only hope and pray…because mine is too far away.
