This poem is about losing my older brother, and best friend...rest easy, my dude!

The day you left, All hell broke loose I was lost and I was broken I was angry and confused

I couldn’t believe this was happening I felt my world collapse and I just screamed I screamed, I cried, I fell to my knees My brother, my Michael, had been taken from me

All I kept thinking was You were too young Too young to be gone, You were barely 21

You’re body’s so still and cold You look so pale I just wish you were breathing I wish you were here

I was mad at God He snatched you from me I wasn’t done with my big bro We had so much left to see

18 years I had with you 18 years and I wasn’t through We were gonna travel the world, Just us two Attending random concerts, just Me and you

I had so much to tell you When you got back from your trip Then dad told me the news And my heart just split You weren’t just my brother You were my best friend You were my everything Then it all came to an end

I feel so alone So broken and shattered You were my ride or die The only thing that mattered

And now you’re gone You’re happy and free But I’m left here With just memories

The worst pain of all Is that life keeps moving But without you here Mine is left in ruins

I wish I could’ve hugged you I wish I could’ve said bye I wish this was just a dream I wish this was a lie

I love you so much, My partner in crime I’m glad you’re at peace But why’d you have to die?

I wish I could’ve helped you But there was nothing I could do I hate that you had to suffer But now that’s over for you

I hope to see you again someday I’ll tell my kids about you You were the spark in my life I hate to go on without you

Take care up there, Michael I love you more than you know I’ll get through this eventually But I’ll never forget my big bro!

Rest In Peace, Michael Gabriel. You were my best friend, I love you so much! 12/26/1996 - 2/16/2018

Melancholic Wisdom

Beautifully written, and absolutely heartbreaking. I'm 21 myself and have an older sister (who I'm really close with) and this really hit home hard for me, I have no idea what I would do without my sister. Well done
