My Brother and Me

Posted by Still Waters , 24 March 2011 · 322 views

When we were kids we would play
He used to look out for me
We had a lot of fun back then
My brother and me

Two years older than me he was
Not that anyone could tell
We were like two peas in a pod
He always picked me up, each time I fell

The years went by and we grew up
Not kids anymore
Adults now, going our separate ways
Different paths to explore

We said our goodbyes one summers day
As it was time for him to leave
I knew he had to go away
Watched and waved him off, as he drove away

Months passed....two policemen at the door
The look I saw on mum and dad's face...
I knew he wouldn't be back this time
He's gone for evermore

Time since passed, many years have gone by
Since that terrible day
Photographs all faded now, all that's left of him
An album full of memories, I really do miss him.

So here I sit remembering, as I very often do
I wonder how he would look today
Grey hair? beard? he'd be a gentleman no doubt
I only wish he was still here.....so I could find out

Love you always xxx

Thank you both, and yes. I wrote this poem from personal experience.

My brother was killed in a car accident and his fiancee was with him too. We lost them both that day.

Thank you both. It happened a long time ago now but it's still very real, and the poem I wrote about 2 years ago.

For some odd reason the poem kind of made me think of the Elric brothers in the anime "FullMetal Alchemist"

Anyway..I am sorry to hear of your loss. You two were obviously close and that is quite commendable and the pain still lingers.
I guess the pain will always be there in some form or another..I really can't imagine what you are feeling.

It was a long time ago now but he was my only brother and I have no sisters so everything after that was just me.....It hit my parents very hard too.

Thank you  :)
