Brotherly Love

For my brother who watched out for me when I was sick with pneumonia. You thought I forgot didn’t you?!?

 

You probably thought I forgot

How you gave up your bed

So I could rest my head.

 

You probably thought I forgot

How you gave up sleep

To hear my weep.

 

You probably thought I forgot

How you gave up your time

As a friend of mine.

 

But you were there

When I sick

You were my walking stick.

 

You were there

When I was tired

You felt your presence was required.

 

You were there

With every struggling breath

Carefully watching my diminishing health.

 

And when I could smile

You were the reason

Yes, the end of my sick season.

 

And when I could laugh

You were the cause

Yes, the end of my unhealthy flaws.

 

And when I could

You were always there

As only a big brother can be with care.
