My Nephew Michael

© Kristy
My nephew is my heart.
He opens doors to rooms
I never knew were there,
Breaks through walls
I don't recall building.
He lights my darkest corners
With the sparkle in his eyes.
My nephew is my soul.
He inspires my wearied spirit
To fly on wings of angels
But while I hold his hand
My feet never leave the ground.
He stills my deepest fears.
My nephew is my past.
He writes my history.
In his eyes I recognize myself,
Memories only we can share.
He is my best friend,
He gives me hope,
He lights up my life.
My nephew

  • This poem explains exactly how I feel about my nephew. his name is Jacob and he turned year old today. I sat there today wondering where this past year has gone. I love that baby so much I feel as if his is my own child. just knowing that God loved us enough to bless my family with him makes me love him and God even more every day.

  • This is exactly how i feel for my 6 year old nephew. My name is Angel and I'm 20 years old, and my nephews father left his life so I took upon myself to be the father figure. I was looking for quotes or a part of a poem that I would tattoo on myself describing how I feel for my nephew. So thank you for giving me exactly what I was looking for.
