Oh Sweet Brother Of Mine.. - Poem by Shannon Nicole

Oh sweet brother of mine,
How I am going to miss thee.
You are about to make a choice,
That will change everything forever.

I understand that there are things you have to do,
That you want to do.
I understand that you want to sacrifice yourself,
Just so we all can live in freedom.

I know you want to see the faces of the demons,
To fight off the enemies.
I know you want to grip the gun,
And not be afraid of death.

I wish I could tell you that you're crazy,
But this is the path you have chosen.
I wish I could tell you that I'll miss you,
But obviously..You already know that.

Oh sweet brother of mine,
You're going to be missed.
If you do go into active combat,
I promise that I will begin praying every night,
Just for you.

Oh sweet brother of mine,
Please be safe.
Please don't show them your back.
Please keep yourself on guard.

Oh sweet brother of mine,
I hope I see you when you come back.
I hope you're not broken into millions.
I hope you don't have to replay through those demons.

Oh sweet brother of mine,
I will miss you.
