SHIRLEY RODRIGUEZ

Dear Brother

I have searched for many years,
Lived through tunnels of tears,
Reminiscing in what could have been,
The hero I always saw within.

From time to time the thought came back,
Wasn’t I your sister? Wasn’t I your blood?

We each parted our own way,
Our parents didn’t help, needless to say.

A couple of months ago my search finally came to an end,
My long lost brother is now my good friend.

What you mean to me I cannot express,
Your more than someone I call when I am in distress.

Today, as you walked me down the isle,
Giving me away,
I had the biggest smile,
That on one could sway.

This is a fresh start, a new road,
Lets both sit back and watch it unfold.
