Brother Death Poem

I didn't get a chance to say good-bye to my brother and I thought writing a poem was the best way to be able to do that

Good-Bye Brother

© Sunshine
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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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 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.
