Emily and Mom

Waking up after a 4 hour nap

With a sore throat and lots of pending work

Trying to concentrate but how can I?

When my little orange kitten is sleeping on my lap

Until the doorbell rang.


So I went to check who’s at this time

And I received a parcel from my mom

I brought it inside and when I opened it

I kind of started to miss my home

My mom sent me a scarf that she made for me

And a lot of pictures of my daughter Emily.


Emily shifted with her grandma

When she was just six

Because her mom and I divorced as there

Was nothing left that we could’ve fixed in our

Relationship but now I guess

Emily and mom are the only reason of

Why I want to live.
