Goodbye, My Brother

Poetry By: Thomas W Peterson

My brother lost his life in an accident years ago. I wrote this to him as I didnt get to go to his funeral. Rest In Peace Leo, this one is for you.

We shared lots of years,
and had a whole lot of fun.
But God has called you
home to his son.

I just can't believe
it has ended this way-
there were so many things
I had wanted to say.

It's too late for that now,
it will just have to wait,
until the day that I see you
at the heavenly gate.

May your soul rest well,
my beloved brother,
but the day is not over,
because we shall share another.

Your tragic death
has left a big hole;
but I'll try not to fret;
your now a free soul.

So when times are great,
and happy as such,
I'll think of you, my brother,
I'll miss you so much.

So goodbye for now, my brother.
I have not one regret.
You were a part of my life
that I'll never forget.
