I held you the day you were born,
thinking that we'd be best friends for life.
We bonded from the start
with a love and connection so strong.
During tough times I tried to keep you safe,
being your protector, advisor, and role model.
We cried, laughed, and pretended the world was ours.
Our love was easy to see, and hard to diminish.
We are growing up now and soon will be apart.
I will forge into the next stage of life,
making sure I let you know what to expect.
Baby brother, we are the same.
Baby brother, our friendship will never end.
My first friend, my best friend, my brother.
