When I am alone

Quite often I'm thrown

Violently into a mood

By my pensive attitude


I think of my past

The time that has passed

And my heart becomes swollen

From time that was stolen


I have some regrets

For the time I was bereft

Many things I would say

If I had one more day


While writing this poem

Wishing I’d better known him

Reminds me of my sister

Knowing that I would miss her


I try a little harder

To love her with ardor

To guide and protect her

So pain won’t recur


Without him I’m lost

My heart tempest-tossed

And though it’s hard to cope

The thoughts give me hope


There's nothing much other

Without a doubt

Memories of my brother

I cannot live without

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
My country
Our world
