To My Brothers - Poem by jackie compton

Even now.
I can still hear you not only in heart,
but also in my soul.

To my two brothers that shall pass this way nomore
Now I truely understand why you were more than
a brother and a friend.

From you I learned.
When my term comes up to bat
Step up to homeplate and go down swing.
Never let hard time throw three balls.
Just to hear life call them a strike.

What I learned from you is worth twice it weight in gold.
Back in the days of my youth.
I did not understand alot of the things that you said and done.
For it took time to process them in my mind.
You tutored me in all fields of life endeavors.

You were there when I skin my heart as well as my knees.
You were right when you told me.
All the mountains and hills that I had to climb.
Was nothing but seasons out of time.

To my two brothers
I say.
Thank you.
