I Had A Little Brother Once - Poem by Kaila George

Had a little brother once
Died at six months old

Tears fell but all was not well
With family at home

Barely remember
His face his smile

I was only five years old
When angels took him away

Mum cried for days
Dad yelled and screamed
Why was he taken away?

I could neither cry
Or shout out why
To young to understand

Just merely watched
The heartache and pain
As we grieved
With each passing day

Soft brown eyes
Gentle soul
That's all I could remember
Of my little brother
Another lost young soul

I sit and ponder
What would he be like?
To discover this land
If he was still here
At home were he belonged

All misty eyed
I start to cry
And wish you were here
Besides your family
And your friends
