I would like to think you could hear me

Even though you are so far away

As I sit here and write my feelings onto this page


I hope my words are so loud

They can reach you, up there, in Heaven

Where you no doubt smile everyday

My little brother


I imagine your smile

Has just a hint of sadness

Remembering your family,

No matter how selfish it sounds


I wish so much and so hard

For the day I will finally meet you, again

Healthy and not breathing through a tube

But for now, these words will have to do
