IN MEMORY OF MY BROTHER


My brother lies so quiet and still
He talks with me no more,
He's left the only home he's ever known
On a journey,
To a place, he has never been before, I watched him suffer day by day
As I sat, helpless, by his side,
Now he rests in eternal peace
For in heaven he abides.

But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
