The Brother Who Vanished
A brother vanished leaving the younger one behind, their bond was more forceful than most people could ever find.
The younger brother wanted to tell his brother the things he never could, he wanted to thank him for all the days he had protected him like any older brother would.
He wanted to tell him of how much he had loved him, but thought that he had time and could never forgive himself for this grave sin.
Every day he thought it was a dream, how could his beloved brother just vanish into an invisible stream!
Every night he would look up towards the sky, he did in fact have many complaints, questions and whys.
“Beloved brother how could you just go and leave me behind? Do you remember the days at boarding school when you kicked their ass for me and left them blind?
“And where the hell is this other world you have gone to? I’m not sure how without you, I will get through!”
“Does heaven really exist?And if so will you be there to welcome me when it’s finally my turn?”
“Can you see me from wherever you are? Can you feel the pain etched in my heart, do you see my internal scars?”
“I just want you to know that through my pain and grief, I have many fond memories that give me some temporary relief.
"Of the days we thought we were both invincible, a little naive, playing in the many gardens of make belief wars.”
Then the brother finally stopped asking his questions, as he suddenly felt cold chills on the back of his neck. Enlightenment was over taking his emotions, that were in such a wreck.
Through his faith in an eternal God, he felt that his brother Charlie was somewhere up there having a laugh.
He also sensed all the others; his mother, father, other brother and two nieces. They where all playing chess and hanging out together with God.
