My Brother in Heaven
I can't recover.
The occasion after it's experienced,
The time after it's moved on,
The presence after the demise.
I can remember.
The occasions we shared,
The times we spent together,
The presence of a very special person.
A Brother is every man's closest friend.
Each occasion is ameliorated,
All time shared is amplified,
His presence makes the mundane special.
A Brother is a constant companion,
On all special occasions,
At all important times,
His presence is comforting and reassuring.
I can remember his birth,
An occasion for rejoicing for our extended Family,
His birth in real time - 06.09.39.
His presence - a real warm cuddly baby brother!
I can remember his life,
He never missed an occasion or an opportunity.
For him time stood still - every second action filled,
His presence lit any space with love.
I can remember his demise.
Unequal collision of car with bicycle with boy.
His death in real time - 30.09.55.
His physical presence just sixteen beautiful years.
I remember him now.
Each day each special ocassion each anniversary,
Sixteen years in Earth time - fifty eight years in Eternity
His spiritual presence? here and now - always and everywhere!
I FEEL HIS PRESENCE NOW!
