This piece was written for those of us who have lost a brother.

A Brother Lost

Lifted up on shattered wings
A broken soul my heart sings
Tears of sadness flow from my eyes
Nevermore to see blue skies

Lonely wandering throughout this town
Upon my heart I wear a frown
Sadly weeping for what is lost
Not a thought about the cost

A best friend gone from sight and sound
Must now speak to the cold ground
A brother forever but here no more
No one knows what lies in store

Leaving this world, not coming back
A person in whole, that is a fact
Smiles and laughter, not part of you now
Will see you again, someway, somehow

Quietly praying for some relief
Wanting to hide from all this grief
Easier knowing you’re with me always
Wanting to join you on the bad days
