My brother

We would always be together

Or so we thought

 

We had our ups and downs

We had our smiles and frowns

 

But one day he grew

and I knew

 

Ever since our family extended

We couldn't imagine or pretended

 

My brother grew to a brotherly parent

And not the boy who couldn't

 

He was tough and stern

He wouldn't allow anyone to see him crash and burn

 

And yet he's still cheerful

And ever so wonderful

 

Whenever he thinks I've done a wrong

He would lecture me I wouldn't listen I was young

 

He pushed and shoved me

To get me to see

 

That nothing is free

that family is key

 

And I cherished each word he said

And  I kept each one of them till I bled

 

I looked up to him I always have

And when he left  I  was mad or sad

 

I always thought we be together

or so i thought

 

And with out him I countiuned to grow

Even my oldest friends say it show

 

Though his words still echos

It's hard to let go

 

So I still hold on of what he influenced

He made my life better there's no coincidence

 

His time here has not been in vain

Even if theres no rain

 

With out he

I wouldn't be me

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family

Has anyone been an brother or sister

older or younger

It doesn't matter

What does is wishing to see loved one's be better

If so 

please show 

To your siblings how you care and love

like mine did to me
