Brother Death Poem

My beloved brother...From your sister

My Beloved Brother

© Brianna
From day one all we did was fight,
now all I do is fight back my tears.
I wanted to do everything you did,
because I wanted to be just like you.
Now I sit here wondering what to do,
because there's no one to replace you.

I never did tell you all the things I felt,
like how much I really did love you.
I wish we could go back and start over again.
I don't want to be alone. I need my brother,
I need my best friend.

When you think of me
while your up in heaven,
Think of how much you meant to me.

Its sad that you left
without saying goodbye,
But just remember we all love you
as you began to fly.

You did so much for me,
as I didn't do much for you.
I hope you will forgive me,
for all the things I didn't do

You were my brother
and my best friend.
I will always love you
no matter how long its been,
since your life came to an end.

*~ I LOVE YOU BUBBA ~*

  • I wanted to find a poem that kind of related to myself and my brother that committed suicide in September of this year. I started reading this and it really started to touch me and when I got down to the end it said, I love you Bubba, and that really got me, because that was what everyone called my brother.

  • my little brother passed away 4 years just before Christmas. Got smashed into a bridge. (he was only 15 1/2) I was 19. I'm almost 24 now and when I came across your poem I just had to write you. Cause that is exactly what I used to write. And I still think about him. I'm at work and that poem almost made me cry.

  • my older brother passed away from cancer when I was seventeen. I never got a chance to say goodbye and it kills me because he meant more than anything and I never got to tell him that,
    This poem says the exact words I still feel, and it brings me comfort to know I'm not alone.

  • I lost 2 brothers this year 2 months apart. I grew up with them and it hurts deeply I miss them so much that some time it seems I can't go on without them . We did everything together. I know they suffered here on earth so I know they are without pain now.

  • Thank you everyone who commented on my poem, I really appreciate it. I lost my brother May 29, 2007 on our mom's birthday. It was and still is the hardest thing I've ever been through. It seems as it just gets harder each day that goes by. And I'm glad that I can share my poem with you and you can be touched by it.
    So thank you so much again !

  • Thank you Brianna for this poem, I lost my older brother a year to this day ago in a hiking accident, he fell off a cliff. I was 17 and he was only 19. It brings me a lot of comfort knowing I'm not the only one going through this. He was my big brother, and I was not ready to say goodbye

  • I found this poem the day after my little brother died on September 25, 2010. He was only seven years old. I was busy writing a few words down for his funeral and it spoke to me so I wrote it down. This is a great poem that even many more people will be able to relate to.

  • You all are so welcome...It's nice that other people can relate to how I feel. 'Cause most of the time I just feel so alone. It feels like the only people that know how I feel is my mom and dad.
    *Feel free to comment I'm not on here very often but when I am I will definitely say my thanks ! :)

  • Hello Brianna,
    Your poem really touched this place in my heart. I can honestly understand. My brother was 6 months old and they said that he died from SIDS, but I was 2 1.2 and my real dad had killed him right in front of me. I am now 15 years old and it still replays in my head everyday. I miss him and I wish that he would still be here. I am really sorry for your loss. And I also need help. Again I'm sorry for all of your losses. My thoughts are with you. Thanks.

  • We lost my brother suddenly, The way it happened was so traumatizing, I haven't really mourned his death. I miss him so much. I have another brother, but things being the way they are, I'm dead to him and him to me, only God understands...But the brother who was shot has been my greatest loss...I'm still not sure how to cope. With Gods help, I'm dealing...I feel your pain, your tears...your Loss...each day gets better...

  • My brother, Gary was 36 when he was diagnosed with lung and bone cancer and died two months later. Our family watched as he suffered tremendously yet was so courageous for us all, especially his 5 yr old daughter who he left behind. I know it may sound selfish but as my only sibling I feel so alone in this world and am so angry and hurt that his beautiful little girl should have to grow up without him. The pain and loss is so devastating to our entire family. I pray that he truly knew how much we loved him and always will. As I'm sure with the rest of my family we were in such denial in his last days that I feel I should have been there for him and tried to talk to him about how he must have been feeling. I think he knew he was dying but looking back we just couldn't. So many words left unsaid that I will never get back. I remember our last hug and I re-visit it all the time. Love always sis xo

  • Hi there honey. I am 14, I will be 15 in December. On May 5 2011 my brother passed away at the age of 18 from a car accident. He was gonna be 19 in July. He was my best friend and it so hard to speak of his name and know he's gone. It's so hard without him. I understand how you feel completely. I never got to tell him how I truly feel about him! I always look back to the times me and him had and turns out me and him had a blast even during are fights! It's so hard to believe he's gone. I get horrible flashbacks and it hits real hard sometimes that this is reality and he's gone... it would be nice to know when things start to feel normal again.... thank you for your poem it really made me think. Your a wonderful women with a big heart! And I'm very sorry about your brother.

  • It's been 25 years since my brother passed I cry every day, he was my heart, he lived in Alaska so I couldn't go. I think if I could have gone I would be ok. My sister-n -law has a tape but I won't watch it, I know he is gone but I just don't want to let him go, it has been so hard on me, I think if I let go he would think I don't love him, my heart stays broken every day for him. I pray for god to help me all the time. I just don't know what to do any more.

  • I am really struggling with my brothers death. This year will be year 15 and it just seems to get harder and harder every year. We just celebrated another birthday of his without him. In less than a month we will have another year that marks his death and another year I am lost without my big brother. Thank you for writing this poem so I don't feel so alone in grieving as right now I am feeling like I am in a cave of darkness with no one to help guide me out.

  • Hi, :) Brianna my name is Alps, and I feel so sorry for your loss. I can understand how u feel, because I have a sister but my dad lost his brother who was only 15, while my dad was doing his last year of university at age 22. And then shortly thereafter my paternal grandfather who expired aged 75. My paternal grandmother had 4 sons but only 2 survive now because she just lost another one to Cancer, I can only wonder how strong she is to handle the sorrow.

  • Hey, my name is Alana. I lost my brother on May 14, 2011. He was 23 years old, he got into a car accident. My big brother was my bestfriend and I never told him. I love him so much. Your poem really touched me and I was in tears. I promise if I could I would bring both of our brothers back. No one deserves it, and I can't handle it. Thanks for this poem.

  • Brianna I'm so sorry for your deep loss. I lost my little brother he was 51 when he died from lung and throat cancer. I loved him
    so much, it hurts so much to lose a sibling. I went to visit him and he so brave and always was thinking of my mom and I. He wanted to make sure we were going to be alright. He didn't know we were never going to be alright without him. Your poem touched my heart and I feel your heartache. I wish for you and all the others that you never knew this heartbreak! Wish I could walk up to Heaven and bring all of our brother's and loved ones back to be with us all. They are all Angels now and watches over us all.

  • I feel your pain, I recently lost a younger brother, he was only 15 years old when he passed away from hypothermia...it happened just a month ago...it has been really hard for me because he acted more mature and responsible than me and I'm 24 years old. I came across your poem, I've been browsing through most of them to find that is similar to what happened...but truth is, they are all the same, nothing is ever different when we lose a family member :(...it has been a month now since my little brother passed away, I hope I can find whatever it is to help me through...sorry to hear about your brother as well.

  • Such a beautiful poem. I lost my little & only brother in a car accident on 25 June 2005, he was 18. The worst part is we didn't know he had passed away as the accident happened far from home during school holidays. We found him in a police morgue about to be buried by the state because no one had claimed his body. I cry everyday, I see him in my mind in my dreams he lives. I can never forgive myself for not following up when his phone went unanswered for 2 days. A part of me was violently ripped away, my heart was shattered, I will never forget my brother. We are now 3 girls with no brother. My mom will carry the pain to her grave I can tell by the way she doesn't mention his name, her eyes are teary when anyone mentions his name. She will never be the same again. Thank you for this lovely poem and I'm really sorry about your brother's passing. I don't know why they say time makes it easier, it sure hasn't done it for me...

  • My brother Sgt. Caesar M. Jones was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident and this poem reminds me of us so much. It has been 6 months and my heart feels like it has been ripped out. My brother was my best friend. He called me on Thursday he said "Hey Sis, I'm coming home this weekend." I was so excited since he lived in Greenville, SC and I'm in Pittsburgh. Saturday morning I called and called him he never answered. That afternoon I got the call he was gone. I'm hurting so bad. My brother was my very best friend now I just feel empty and alone.
    RIP Cid I love you and miss you. Big SIS

  • I lost my brother in a gang related drive by shooting back in 1999 he was only 22 years old. It's been 14 years and I never said good bye. He lived in Compton Cal. And had just move to Texas . When they called me he was sick I knew he was death. But I still can't understand why he passed away he was driving and his friend was in the passengers seat and drive by and killed him. His friend is alive but why only him. He was great loving and loved to hug me hold me tight he left two girls of the age 6 and 3 yrs old. I still cry it's very hard to say good bye when I go visit at the cemetery...

  • Around this time in 7 days my brother will be gone 2 years. It feels like just yesterday the police called me outside my house around 11 pm saying they had news for me. Their words were "I'm sorry but your brother didn't make it". I felt like someone had just ripped a peace of my heart ou . I cried for months , my family was just falling apart. I'm the oldest out of 6 kids, my brother was the middle child 12 years old when he died in a hit and run. I can't say it gets better but you learn how to deal with it little by little I think of my brother all the time. I just wish I didn't argue so much with him and told him I loved him as many times as I should've but that's all too late now. I just wish that now he knows how much he means to me ... Love you lalito

  • I lost my brother 4 years ago. He was stabbed by some kids on his way home. He died on September 9 2009, days before my birthday and 2 months before his birthday. He died at the age of 15 and I was 16. I think what hurts the most is I never got to say goodbye to him and tell him how much I love him, that I was so happy to have a brother like him and how much he means to me. We were so close that when he passed away I also lost the other half of me. Though he's gone but the memories we had will always be with me forever. I know one day we will meet again somewhere beyond the clouds.
