You too, Bro

By Nico LaSalle

I was sleeping and I woke up with my phone buzzin’.

I checked my text and it was a message from my friend telling me we had lost our childhood friend.

When I seen who it was it blew my mind ‘cause the night before I was with him and we had the best time ever.

We were laughing, telling old stories and thinking about the times we had in elementary school.

While I was laying down and thinking, the only thing that was running through my mind was the last thing I heard him say,

“Stay safe and keep your head up.”

“You too, bro.”
