My Brother

Affection is a mutual feeling

sometimes it has no bounds

and affection it was that I entertained

when you came into my life

An adult brother

A mid teen

you came in laughing like the sun

making things seem brighter

you changed my whole perception of life

your senseless jokes

your varied talk

your childish heart

and caring soul

your will to change

your sound advice

your free affection

the right you claimed

You proved to be the brother

Any sister will want to have

I never realized though until the end

that it was YOU who changed my life

and not me yours !

Time has passed

Time has come ….

To let go of what once was mine …

Now that I know

you are not there for granted

I realize how much I really cared.

Something beyond affection, something beyond care

I never doubted you were mine!

The goodbye is hard.

It's having its toll

I feel so torn apart

A wrenching in my soul

a pain in my heart

a suffocation in my throat

and angry , tearless sighs

Because: I don't want to let go

And it hurts so much more

Now that I know

You cared even more ………………………..
