This piece is part of my family section. I wrote it about my brothers. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed expressing with words my feelings toward my much loved brothers, Mike (deceased 1991) and Toy.

A brother's love is steadfast; a brother's love is true
Forever supportive, strength from within is always stemmed from you
A brother's love gives you that hidden warm embrace
It affords us all the privilege of both time and place
A brother's love protects us from all things that are bad
Our hearts connect in such a way that times are never sad
A brother's love will always fill our minds, bodies and souls
They are the part of our family that makes this family whole
A brother's love, it lifts us up to plateaus never known
Regardless of the spoken word the love is always shown
A brother's love is loud and bright
It is that miraculous thing of life
A brother's love just soothes your soul
It wraps you up and makes you whole
A brother's love is unconditional; a brother's love is pure
A lifelong bond that will forever and always endure
A brother's love wipes away your tears
It urges us through our many fears
A brother's love is beautiful and kind
Forever withstanding the sands of time
A brother's love brings a smile to our saddened face
It eases the pain away from this everyday place
A brother's love opens your heart
Because of your life he is a part.
