Abel Jeremiah is the younger
Brother of Cierra Juliann*.
Each day he stays awake a little longer,
Limbs flailing as he tries out what he can.
Just a few months old, he is already
Engaged in uninhibited flirtation,
Returning looks with wide eyes bright and steady,
Exploring the terrain of the relation.
Make room for him, Cierra, in your heart!
In time he will become a lifelong friend.
Although he draws all eyes as though by art,
He'll be drawn to your eyes in the end.
