I Miss You Brother

10 years ago today, you left your life and went away.
God chose you for a reason,
I know that this is true, but it's so hard to say goodbye,
you were only 21.
That cancer it took you, that nasty thing.
You tried so hard and you fought with all you had,
but what hurt me the most
was seeing the confusion and hurt in your little boy's eyes
when we told him that daddy was in heaven and an angel by God's side.
The days have gone by, and it still hurts like hell,
I want to call you so badly and just say hello.
But your memories are all that I have and a precious time in my life
when you were still around.
The days they get easier but they will never be easy,
how can they when you lost your best friend and your brother.
So Paul I write this for you, you are the best.
I have never for one second quit loving you
the same way that I did the day you took your last breath.
So I love you and I miss you and always remember that
I will see you in heaven one day.
Oh and one more thing....
would it hurt you to let me win the lottery...
love always and forever.
Your sister
