Good-Bye Brother

Heaven has called upon you today,
leaving so many words left to say.
But now it's too late, for your time has come,
words unspoken; I am sure everybody has some.
Regrets and wishes are probably there too,
but lasting forever are memories of you.
I was there when you needed a place to stay,
just like you would be there for me night or day.
There have been many times that we disagreed,
but we were there for each other in time of need.
Now it's time for me to say Good-Bye,
until we meet again in heaven to fly.

In Dedication To: Donald Wayne Tyarks

My brother passed away suddenly in a car accident 3 hours away from home near deposit NY. He was 37 . We bickered so much and for the past year we had not spoken. Now there is no chance for reconciliation , no more time to say our sorries again, no more smiles to share with each other. I'm so full of regret of how we left things between us. Your wake is later today and I am so afraid to see you, so afraid of that final goodbye. I will take this pain with me until I die and always wonder if I could have prevented this from occurring. I'm so sorry little brother, I'm missing you every moment and will everyday. My only promise I can give to you is that I will always be there for your little girl. May God embrace you until we all meet again.

My brother passed away before I was born. I am really sad now that he's not here, but I always remember him in my heart, which makes him alive in my heart.

I have just lost my brother in England to suicide. I am absolutely devastated, I'm not sure how long it will take to get over this. I read this poem and it was close to home for me, I might even use it for one of my family to read at the funeral on my behalf. So lovely.

My brother committed suicide in October last year I am struggling to get over it I know I have to let go but I can't. Reading these poems sometimes helps but most of the time I am in tears.

My brother passed away in July 2012 unexpectedly and I never had the chance to say goodbye to him. I think about him everyday and what he'd be doing with his life if he was still alive.

My brother committed suicide in March. It's been a struggle everyday. I have sat on this site and cried over and over again. But reading these poems have brought back wonderful memories of him for me. Wish I could write poems.

My Uncle passed away. My Dad and I have been talking about things to say at his service. He wanted to say some things about things he'll always remember. I wanted to read a poem, but I'm not good at that type of thing. Dad isn't very well with his words. So, I found your Poem and it went along with how I feel. Thought my Dad or I could read this. I know it sounds like something my Dad would've wanted to say to him too. So Thanks for the Poem.
