Relationships between brothers can be a very special one. An elder brother is normally so much more than just a sibling.

You made yourself a promise

A long, long time ago

A promise

Of commitment

To help them form and grow

It wasn’t always easy

Sometimes it was rough

They didn’t always listen

At times, you’d had enough

You carried on regardless

Guiding them through life

And when you thought you’d got them all

You’d find one in deep strife

You turned into their


A never wavering strength

Each one a complete person

A love with endless length

You made another promise

Where your father lay

One that you’ve neglected

As life has passed your way

You have to build a future

With foundations that are strong

You have to find stability

And not just drift along

When you keep this promise

The chain will be complete

Because they too made a promise

Without you they can’t keep
