He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother - A Sister's Love
He wasn’t old enough to talk
But big enough to almost walk,
The day they brought me home.
Eleven months, he beat me by
Still, older brother, you can’t deny!
I skipped the crawling and started to run
To catch up to what my brother had done.
By his side, I had to be
He just meant the world to me!
He might just be my brother
But, oh he’s so much more.
Everything about him
I simply just adore.
Never treated me like an annoyance
Always let me tag along
The bond we were creating
Would last us all life long.
If he climbed a tree, I climbed it too
Everything my brother did, I would try to do!
I was his little sidekick, we laughed so hard we cried
Didn’t care where he was going, I was going by his side!
His last piece of Fruit Stripe gum, he gifted it to me!
I’ve never known another who acted more unselfishly!
If someone ever looked at me in an unflattering kind of way.
My brother quickly took care of businesses and made everything okay.
We grew up doing everything, together all the time
We told each other secrets and we were partners in crime.
He might have grown up and left the house
To go and save the world.
This will not be so hard for him
He saved this little girl!
Everything about who I am, is changed because of him
Every day was bright and sunny, never was it dim.
Even when things were rough he kept me unaware.
I find peace in each and every day, knowing forever he’ll be there!
My Big Brother, Derek
All I ever talk about to my brother is HubPages... so he figured to get me to listen to him, he'd have to join...Raven765 ... My Gemini Twin! (Unlike me, he's quite normal)... Stop by and say Hi, if you get a chance! :-)
A little update: The poor sap is working diligently to get his first hub to pass the QAP, 3rd attempt as we speak... it was there, now it's gone :-( ... In an attempt to upload a video he found himself graced with a virus... so he'll be as busy as a beaver today!
