to my brother


to my brother

since you gone
all hope were lost to a stone,
my eyes always see you
by the shadow not once,
my dreams all mirrored upon you
from the day you left
us in the empty skies of tears,
will you ever come back
to stay with us again?
will you smile again
to the stories i tell?
will you?

your child always reminds me
of you,
we miss you dearly
and tenderly,
we miss you dear brother,
your smile i still remember,
your house i still remember,
your life was short my brother,
why did you have to die?
why did you leave us behind?
will you ever come back?

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
