I will remember YOU every step of the way "A poem to my deceased brother"

Updated on August 24, 2013


I went to the hospital to look for

a baby the other day, and every step

of the way I thought about you. It's

over thirteen years since I last saw you,

and I remembered how many times

I climbed that stairway just to see

you my brother before I started

my day.


I could not go straight to school without

dropping by at your ward to see how you

were doing. Your little face agonizing in pains

yet you managed a smile the moments with

you was so worth while.


I thought about you while I was at school or

at play I just wished that things hadn't turned

out this way. Why did you have to get sick and

be hospitalized why did death hang over your

life, dark shadows appeared under your eyes.

It was just like a week after you turned five.


I remembered looking into your eyes when

you was going to take your birthday picture

with mum. Little did we know it was your

last picture before you die.


Life feels so rotten without you I wished everyday

that you were still here but God did not permit

so all my sorrows I must try to quit. I can't wait

to see you again it feels like forever you've gone away

,when will God send me my ticket to come home

with you to stay.


I want to hug you my brother the

love is so real, I won't trade you for another,

daily you will be in my heart until this sick

world I depart.


I know you are watching me now as I type this

precious poem to you, please read it with the

angels on high. I WILL ALWAYS LOVE

YOU and that's nothing new. I will remember

you every step of the way.

      I have a brother in heaven too Jo but when a baby dies it is just twice the shame and pain but you never have to wonder if you will see him again; you do know it. Beautiful and sad tribute. God bless you.

      LadyFiddler, I very much connect with this poem because I too, lost a brother. Your painful expression is very touching. I feel both of your voices talking, the child and the adult. Thank you for sharing. Voted up and beautiful.

      You still have such a strong connection with your brother after all of these years. I think it's wonderful how you keep his memory alive. Your poem is touching and beautiful, as it expresses your bewilderment and sorrow so well. Thanks for sharing this.

      The love between a sister and a brother is so unconditional. I can feel you pain through this poem. There is only one thing to do now. You have to just keep on living and writing on. Thanks for sharing!
