This Poem Is Dedicated To My Late Brother Who I Love Dearly And Died Before His Time. I Love You Bubba. In Memory Of Troy Alan Payne. R.I.P.

The Loss Of A Brother
Sometimes I Sit And Wonder Why Things Happen The Way They Do
One Minute Your Happy And The Next Your Blue
I Try To Put Up A Good Fight
But It Seems No Matter What I Do It Just Isn't Right
Life Took One Of The Greatest People I Treasured When It Took My Brother
I Know People Say "Well You Still Have A Brother With Me", But There Can Never Be Another
I Miss Him With My Heart And Soul
We Were Both Supposed To Grow Old
I Treasure The Last Two Days We Spent Together
It's A Memory That Will Last Forever
There's Not A Day That Goes By That I Don't Think Of His Face
I Only Pray That He's In A Happier Place
I Only Wish There Was Something I Could've Done
Because I Loved Seeing His Face And Smile In The Sun
But With Your Memory Still With Me We'll Be Together
And That's Something That Will Last Forever
There Can Never Be Another Because You'll Always Be My Brother
I'll Always Miss And Love You And You'll Always Be By My Side
And One Day We'll Be Together And See Each Other On The Other Side

Well expressed! Gave it an "I Like It" vote.

Know the feeling/s all too well. Lost my own younger brother in Vietnam. In 1967. He was just 18 years old at the time.

Thank you for becoming a fan.

Happier trails for the future,

Ed Bradley.

This was very moving *sobs*
I love the flow of this poem and how you express your feelings. Sometimes memories is all that we have left of people but it brings us closer to them, somehow. Keep it up :)

Thanks. I Find It Easier To Express Myself Through Poetry. I Feel If We Didn't Have The Memories We Would All Be Lost. I'll Try To Keep It Going.

:( I'm sooo sorry for your loss. I can't say I know the feeling but if anything ever happened to my little bro I'd be crushed.
I've seen first hand, though, how lossing a brother hurts someone. Back in 2005 my uncle took his own life. It crush my dad....He still gets really sad when people talk about him. :( I really hope your brother rest's in peace.
Lots of love. :)
