My Best Friend My Brother - Rest In Peace Little Boy - Poem by Daniel Richards

my best friend my brother

I only ever wanted you to see tomorrow
I only ever wanted to take away your pain,
I remember the days we used to be there laughing
I wish we could’ve gone out playing in the pleasant rain,

I only ever wanted to ease your pain
I only wanted to ease your suffering and remove the strain
I only ever wanted to ease your pain
Ease your pain, yes, ease your pain

I always felt like your weaker older brother
A helpless loving best friend,
But I could never steal you from your endless pain
It’s painful now that our brotherhood had too end

My brother I know, times are a changing, changing, changing,
I know it’s time to reach out for something new
And I know this means you too,
But it’s not what I want to do

The time came where it was the essence for you to close your eyes
I didn’t want it but I know you needed it, my best friend
It’s time to ease your pain
I always felt like your weaker brother
A helpless loving best friend,

I only wanted to see you playing
I only wanted to see you laughing
But time has seen fit to end
My little soldier my best friend

I only ever wanted to ease your pain
I only wanted to ease you suffering and remove the strain
I only ever wanted to ease your pain
Ease your pain, yes, ease your pain

I always felt like your weaker brother
A helpless loving best friend,
But I could never steal you from your endless pain
It’s painful now that our brotherhood had too end

I miss you, forever ill miss you
But now the end has come for your pain, and through cloudy gates in the sky
I see my best friend my brother
Fly away to escape the pain
