Brothers Are A Gift
When we are young, our brothers can become a thorn in our side. Although they are there to protect us, they have an uncanny way of annoying us. As we grow older our brothers are still by our side, concerned about our everyday activity and who has harmed us. They give us wings to fly and catch us when we fall. They will listen intently to our relationship woes and guide us like a man is supposed to do. When we do not have anyone to talk to, they are a phone call or text message away, telling us simply all will be okay. Often we forget about how important a brother is and do not wish to pester them with our issues.
Brothers' are a gift sent from God to be our strength and our backbone. So to all of the brothers' who have sisters' and believe you are forgotten, this is from all of us to all of you.
Brother's are a gift sent from up above,
Only God knows how much we are loved.
You have wiped a tear and created a smile,
Even though we are apart, you have been there
all the while. From stealing our dolls, to skinning
our knees and telling mom we have hung from the
trees. A midnight call and a cry for help, makes us
realize you're our brother, no doubt. When we are
feeling down, the cell phone places a call, just to
remind us we are siblings after all. Sometimes we
do not wish to bother you , but we do know that
you will catch us when we fall. Even though we are
miles apart, forever and always you are etched in our
heart. So when you believe we are not listening to you,
we are acknowledging all that you do. Sometimes ashamed
when we need a helping hand, but we do know about God's
promise and you are our helping hand. Nobody will
understand the bond that we have, but only God knows
where a brother stands. Sisters' are great but a brother will
do and a brother is a gift , to all through and through. So when
you read this little poem that I wrote, this comes from the heart
note to note. Brothers are a gift sent from up above and only
God knows, that kind of love. So if you are a brother, remember
all that you have done, and the spiritual bond will never be gone.
Intertwined through Heaven and sent to Earth, you are
joined hand-in-hand that was in the man's plan.
Dry your eyes and do not shed a tear, your brother is a
warrior and does not stand in fear. Give him a call or drop
him a line, he will lend you his ear, and all will be fine.
When it is time to leave this earth once again we will meet
on the other side my brother, my friend.
So until that time comes and although we are miles apart,
you will be forever and always etched in my heart.
