I wish you were still here
I was so happy when you came
I really thought that you had came
to stay. You made a great change
because before you, I only had sisters.
Every time it comes around to the day
you were born and the day you die. It makes
me feel so melancholy. Tomorrow March 15th
you would have been sweet sixteen.
I sometimes wished that you was still here
I can imagine how grown up you would have
been. What a delight it would have been
to see my little brother grow into manhood. I
loved you at first site and I knew you loved me
Your freshness and mannishness at your
tender age only brought joy to my face. For
in your short stay on earth I treasured every
moment we spent. You broke my heart when
you left me without saying good bye.
I know where you are and someday soon
I know I’ll be with you to live forever.
As for now I am yet mortal and cannot
help the way I feel the tears are still so
real. I can’t help how much I’ve missed
But God alone knew why he showed you
the good favor to take you from this sinful
world. I know he’d give me the courage to
endure the pain until we meet again.
