The Call

She calls me on my cellphone.
Timid voice.
Not quite all grown yet.

I'm pregnant
she says.
You probably realized that
from the way I've been acting.

Sure did
I say.
Bishaah Tovah.

I feel like such a baby!
she exclaims.

You are
I reply.
My baby sister.

That really hurts.
I'm so sorry for you that you are going through so much pain!
You have a way with touch my heart with each and every post...and now I'm teary-eyed...
