Rispetto 01 : A Gift of Love
My brother, A gift of Love
My brother is small, not yet tall
So he is younger and I am older.
I love him like my doll,
So let him sleep on my shoulder .
We fight a lot
But to mother, always get caught.
Still on us, she is never rough
Brother and mother really are gifts of love.
