Two Brothers, One Roof - Poem by Susan Lacovara

That I, so well, tonight might sleep
Two brothers, one roof, their dreams to keep
Wrapped warm together, both heartbeats pound
While mine's, at rest...they're safely sound.

One flew, to join the other's nest
So envious, left grounded, I must confess
How happiness hosts just greeting other's
One roof, one lifetime shared, two brothers.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

(10/20/13) For Rich, leaving the New York skyline...To join up with Dom,
in the Florida sunshine...I would have loved to stow away....Too much love, to my Two Brothers...Dream, like you did, when we were children and tomorrow...SKIP! ! ! PEACE

    Possibly the most valuable possession we own is our love of family... it's so nice to spread around.. and most wonderful to hear about. (Report) Reply

    To look upon the love between others for which the poet is a part, with joy and peace and happiness for them, is refreshingly greater than its summed parts. A fine write in form and sentiment. (Report) Reply
