For My Brother

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

For My Brother

You left without

Warning.

Gone so fast.

Now all we have

Are memories

Of our past.

You are loved by so many.

You might not

Have known,

But in our hearts

Is where

You have grown.

The memories

I have throughout

The years

Will last

forever with

Laughter and tears.

We shared our

Birthday

Since I was five.

My wish now will be

To have you back healthy

And alive.

I will miss you

Oh so much.

So will all

The lives that

You have

Touched.

I can’t say goodbye.

I can’t accept

Your death.

You will live in my heart

Forever

Until my last breath.
