Brother

BROTHER


Brother is the one I open up to
He is my soul and strength,
Turn to him in time of trouble,
He is there to impart the strength within.

He accepts me as I flow,
He is different with heart full of love,
He makes me laugh, makes me smile,
When Iam depressed and alone.
You were there

Iam proud of you bro,
I have been red in the sun,
I have been drowned in the ocean
I have sunk way beneath survival
You were there.

I lost rays of sunshine,
I lost rays of hope,
Pain was so deep, could not bear,
Arrows hit could not be stopped,
Shadows surrounded like an evil spirit
You were there.

Mountains are so hard to climb,
Sky was beyond my reach,
Life was like the highways,
Too many cross ways,
Could not get across the roads.
You were there.

I think of those good old child hood days,
We had our little fights and misunderstandings
All that is left as an echo,
But now faded away like the mist of the morning
Iam glad you were there.

There was a time once when the birds never chanted,
Winds never roared, sea never moved,
Flowers never bloomed
No sun ever shined
No moon ever shone
It was dark as the night.
You were there.

Bro, you’re the greatest of all
You held me in your prayers,
You backed me up with encouragement,
You were there.


Your face shone like the moon,
Your love was like rays of sunshine,
You held out your hands and lifted me up,
Bro let me tell you from the bottom of my heart …..

YOU ARE THE GREATES GIFT A SISTER LIKE ME COULD EVER HAVE!



With lots and lots of love
