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