My Best Friend My Brother - Rest In Peace Little Boy


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

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
