Brother, I wait for the day we'll reunite...

Winds cling to me like a baby to its Mother,
stars shimmer as the moon shines in the firmament.
Death points its finger...enticing you to come,
I search the sky for you to give me a sign.

My love's as strong as the day you went away,
I ache to see your face and crooked smile.
I think I hear your voice in the distance,
run to see if I can see where it's coming from.

I wasn't prepared for you to not be here,
our time together wasn't long enough.
I loved you from the time you were a small lad,
not realizing I'd lose you in the prime of life.

There were songs we didn't get to sing,
camping trips we never got to take.
Things I wanted to say was left unsaid,
laughs left to echo like hyenas in the forest.

I miss you were special to me,
"no" one touched my heart like you did at times.
We were close from the day you were born,
I remember rocking and singing to you for hours.

I stand here alone as mist kisses my eyelids,
know it's you sending me a sign from above,
as your weeping tears blow in the wind,
awakening my soul you're here with me.

Brother, I wait for the day we'll reunite,
these fields of rubble are lonely and sad.
This rose's head hangs in loneliness,
petals are wilting as the color begins to fade.
