Big Brother Gone

Day by day I think of you,
How can all of this be true?
I can't believe you're really gone,
I still can't accept it,
Even after so long.
Just the thought of you makes me cry,
I never even got the chance to say goodbye.
Every picture, every letter,
I don't know if it will ever get better.
I always smell your familiar scent,
It makes me think of all of the times we've spent.
I know we didn't always get along,
And every time we talked, it would always go wrong.
So many things I never got to say,
I never imagined you'd ever be so far away.
You were my brother,
And I loved you like no other.
In my heart you'll always be,
You'll be my guide and help me see.
I'll never forget your soothing voice,
I would take your place if I had a choice.
But now I have to let you rest,
Although without you my world's a mess.
I miss you with all of my heart,
I wish we never had to part.
I know you're always by my side,
So now I guess this is my goodbye...

Rest in Peace Manuel- Christina

My brother died almost a month ago, on July 8, 2014. He took his life in our garage, and my close friend and I were the ones to find him. He was 17, and about to become a senior, and I'm 12, about to become an eighth grader. He hung himself, but every clairvoyant we've talked to said it was an accident that involved the choking game. This poem describes exactly how I feel and it brought so many tears to my eyes, it's absolutely beautiful!

Your poem made be break down my brother was murdered 9 months ago by losers that beat him in the head with a baseball bat and I was 37 weeks pregnant. My daughter will never know her uncle because of someone else's actions. My brother didn't have much so if he could help you or even just give you the shirt of his back he would. But the pain is still there.

This poem made me cry! I lost my big brother two months ago in a car crash. I still can't believe that he is gone, two months after his passing. We were so close and he would always be there for me when I needed him. I never got to say goodbye to him. I can't even remember the last time I saw him. Every little thing reminds me of him. I REALLY love this poem!

This poem touched my heart in so many ways. It's going on 6 yrs. since my brother passed away, he was only 47. I'm still not over the grief, there are some days, when all I have to do is think of him & my eyes fill up with tears. I don't think we ever really get over it. I miss him so much. So sorry for your loss, you are not alone..he's always with you as I know my brother is with me.

Thanks so much for your beautiful poem.
I'm so angry that my brother is gone.
I'm 59 and my little brother was 57 and died of a cardiac arrest.
I cry all the time, we were so close. I love and miss him everyday. He would always know the name of the songs on the radio, and who sang them. He always joked around, and was the sweetest and kindest brother any sister could have. Always treasure what you have, because it could be gone in a second. Your poem made me cry, it's so beautiful!

7 years ago today my brother Jason was taken from my life by another. I can still hear his voice to this day and remember all his funny hilarious comments. This life without him still feels incomplete but I move forward for him. I never had a chance to say goodbye but he reached out to me to show me he's ok. The thought of death doesn't bother me because I know in my heart Jason will be there waiting for me.! I love you brother with all my heart, you are my best friend, and I have become the person I have today all because of you! Thank you brother for all you did for me!!

this poem is soooooo good. It relates to me a lot because I lost my older brother Shaun when I was 10 years old. He was my everything. I used to have so much fun with him. He was like a father to me since my dad wasn't around that much. He taught me a lot of things. I'm still trying to learn how to cope with his death even though it was almost 8 years ago. Everyone tells me to forget about it but for some reason I can't. It's going to get better soon enough.

My brother died in a horrific car accident 6 months ago today. I have written poems, letters, been to counseling, and nothing seems to help. Your poem has hit home with me on so many levels. I miss my little brother. There is so much pain and hurt I feel. Your poem was like you were inside of me writing exactly my feelings. Thank you for writing and publishing this.

Wow this is a great poem it made me miss my one brother I only got along with. I would do anything to get him back but he has gone to a better place. He will always and forever be with me. He died in a car accident. He was 19 every day I think of him. I still remember his voice and his cheesy smile. He loved to play basketball and hang out with me and his friends we were always together. It was just always us to against the world by ourselves. Your poem really touched me. I LOVE YOU JEREMY LUPE BIG BROTHER

Love this poem....It describes how I feel down to the T. I lost 2 brothers. They were both older to me. Sadly I never got to meet my brother Jr. He was run over by my Aunt when he was 2 1\2 yrs old. I lost my second older brother in a train accident/murder. Nobody really knows what happened so we are all left with unanswered questions. I was notified of his death the worst possible way. A phone call from a total stranger telling me your brother got hit by a train and is dead. Their words exactly. We were so close, so not being able to say goodbye is just eating me up. Not a day goes by that I don't think about him.

I am preparing for the pending death of my big brother. We are both mid life with respect to ages. Last night on the phone he asked me if I would give the eulogy for him. I accepted because it is an honor to have the task. Although he is 8 years older, he and I are very close. I asked him if he wanted me to tell some stories of our conversations, to be humorous or sincere. He said it was up to me. I am not sure if I can do this without crying. I cried when I read your poem. I am not sure how to prepare for this task. Should I just speak from the heart or should I go into this with written words?

Thanks Christinia!
I lost my twin brother 8 years ago in July. I miss him so much. We didn't always get along but he was my twin brother. We were born on July-4-1972 and we lost him July-26-04. One day after my baby girls 12th birthday. I hate the month of July now don't even celebrate my birthdays any more. I remember the 2nd to the last time I saw him. He was arguing with someone who owed him money and the guys girlfriend got on the phone and was cussing him out and he told her come on down here my sister is here now.

I lost 2 brothers this year within 5 months of each other. I am still finding it hard to accept. We hardly got over the shock of the first brother, when my youngest one committed suicide. Robert passed away a year after being diagnosed with cancer, I was there in the last hours of his life. Even though I was there he was to confused to even know I was there. To me I never got to say goodbye to one of my brothers.

I lost my brother on 11 December 2010, he was 21 years old and I was 18. I stay on college and I didn't see him for two weeks before he died. I didn't even say goodbye to him. We were close I miss him a lot. This poem is exactly how I feel. If I could just turn back the time. And the people that was with him don't even want to confess to what really happened. I'm so angry. I'm really trying to deal with my brothers death really..........Wish I could just give him a hug even if it is in my dreams. Miss you very much RIP Ballie Love you.

My Dad who is 59 years old, recently lost his oldest brother, to Esophageal Cancer, and my dad's oldest brother was only 61. He lost his first brother when he was 22, and he died due to a drowning accident, which is really sad considering the fact that my dad's first brother was only 13 when he died. He couldn't stop crying because his heart shattered. Imagine being born, and then living for a while, and then never seeing your family Ever again. I wish I was rich so I could bring him back! :( :(

Thank you I have just lost my only brother this week. He would have been 62 today (7/29) and was alone when he died from heat exposure and remained alone for 3 weeks before he was found. Oh Lord... the pain I felt and continue to feel is OVERWHELMING, will it ever stop Christina? Does it get any better?

This poem said everything I would have said and exactly how I feel. On November 24 2010 I got a phone call from my father telling me to rush to his house, and he would not tell me why. I had no idea that on that day my life would be turned upside down. When I walked in through my fathers door I see one of my brothers and my sister sitting on the sofa with blank expressions. My father was at the door as soon as I walked in grabbed me by the shoulders and I had no idea why. He had me by the shoulders to keep me from falling when he told me that my brother got ran over by a truck and killed instantly while going to work. Thank you for this poem it is helping me get my goodbye I did not get to have.

I lost my brother a week ago tomorrow. The pain in my soul is so deep I find it very difficult to have life without him. My brother loved life and wanted to live so much, but a heart attack took him away. Your poem really touches my heart as I feel so much of what you express. He was my only brother with us five sisters. I love my parents but when they died it hurt but one believes parents will go first. The pain I feel for losing my brother is different. My brother, my best friend, I will miss him always and he is always on my mind. Thank you for sharing your heartfelt feelings and thoughts. Goodbye Cecil Jr., my dear brother. Your sister Cee.

My brother died at the end of last June on a night out, he was 20 years old and nobody knows what lead to his death. He was found in the middle of nowhere and was hit a by a car, he didn't have any personal belongings on him. This poem is lovely, I can really relate to it, especially the part where you say you if you had the choice you would change places. I wish he was here all the time, I wish he was in another part of the world living out his dreams, I would be content with never seeing him again I just wish he was still able to experience all the things he loved. We were best friends and had such an incredible bond, I know I'll never find that with anybody ever again but at least I can say I once had it. Love you Jonny, always will x

My brother died on August 17, 2010 due to a car wreck. He broke his fifth vertebrate and was paralyzed from neck down. They had him living on life support. It's really hard to see my dad try and get through the day knowing this was his second son and knowing he has one more. Everyday I wonder why it is that god had to take him out of all people in the world. I didn't get to say good bye or have a decision in the choice of them taking him off of life support. Everyday I wonder what would have happened if he hadn't died and what our lives would be like. I'm terribly sorry for your loss I know what it's like to grow up with out a brother.

I lost my two older and elder brothers in two different type of road accident in between nine and half month. One at the age of 28 died in Nepal and another at the age of 26 died in USA. Both of them were well established in their own field. But the cruel death took away my loving brothers.

Thank you for helping me sharing about my brothers. Neither I can cry neither I could die. Thank you for giving me platform.

This poem is very beautiful I was looking for poems to say out loud because my brother just passed the way March 14. I still can't believe it I really miss him, We were so close I can't believe he's gone. I dont want to accept the fact that he's gone, I wish I can go back to the day he passed the way and not let him go out. All of our memories we had with each other will never be forgotten.

This poem touched my heart. I lost my brother in Jan of 03. People blame my oldest brother for what happened and he doesn't talk to us (family) so its like I lost two brothers. Wishing I could go back and change what happened. It's been ten years now and I still haven't gotten over his death. I still cry myself to sleep. The only thing that got me through all this time is my little brother, whom I love with all my heart. He is now my other half but there's a piece of my heart that will never be filled. RIP Ivan M. Carroll. Miss you soo much.

I'm sorry to hear all this, I lost my 26 year old brother. He was stabbed by some guy and it was three vs. him. He was in a wrong place in the wrong time. A girl invited him to a kick back and everyone was drunk already. He tried to leave and the girl who invited him. But before she decided to take the beers my brother and her brought, so that's when everything started. Two guys jumped my brother and one other guy brought a butcher knife and stabbed him under his armpit towards the heart. My brother was a really good person. He had no problems. Was an ex marine and was working and needed one more month to graduate from college. He left a little 3 years old baby. I just wanted to let everything out (sigh). It feels like if it was just yesterday.

My big brother died December 2, 2011 (49 days ago). I called my Dad while I was at work. He was crying. He said there was a fire. "Is everyone ok?" I asked. "Brendan's dead." My house burned down and my 24 year old brother died. We were supposed to grow old together. One day, I might be three times his age: 72. And he will be 53 years dead. I am so afraid of being 53 years away from him. I am so afraid of my future without him.
Thank you, everyone for sharing. I feel a sick comfort knowing that there are people who can relate to me.

OMG this poem really touched me and made me cry. I lost my big brother, HADI last year. I never got to say goodbye. It was an accident. He was my only sibling. He was just 22 years old, just 1 year and a half older than me. It happened just a few weeks after my 21st birthday. He always used to make me laugh, sigh, such good days. I think about our childhood memories all the time. I can't believe this has happened to us. He was so so nice and funny. I was not a good sister for him I know. He was much nicer than me. Why should he leave us so soon? It's not fair for sure. He was just so young and had lots of plans for his life.
You left me behind and I'm so lonely now my lovely bro I miss youuuuuuu badly.

Thank you for sharing your poem with me. I can relate because one of my brothers passed away a month and 19 days ago at age 26 by falling off a 30 foot roof at work. He didn't have anything to hold on to. He didn't have any support to keep him safe he was in the hospital for a week he would take one step forward and then two steps back. I can still remember when my mom got a call from the hospital and I was getting ready for school. The doctor said his brain was swelling I knew right then and there that I was going to the hospital that November 2 2011 was going to be the last time I was going to see my brother, but I stayed strong for my parents and other siblings. About 2 hours after being at the hospital the doctor called us all into a room and said I'm sorry but he didn't make it. I broke down crying I didn't believe it. I didn't know what to do. Still to this day it doesn't seem real. I am the youngest of 13 and only 17 but I never thought that something like this could ever happen to anyone of my brothers or sisters. I never said goodbye to my brother I just told him I would see him later when it's my time to go I will see him again someday. He will be waiting at the gates of heaven for me love and miss ya bunches, love your little sister Cheyenne

I was looking for a poem to put in our local newspaper on February 20th in remembrance of him. He will be gone ten years. He died from complications of a car accident in 2002. His car accident was June 15th, but he tried to stay. He was 22 on the day he died. He was only 18 months younger than me, my best friend. He left behind a baby girl, that he would be so proud of and two other siblings, our parents too. This poem was the first I read and I didn't need to go any farther. This is wonderful.

So sorry for your loss. I lost my older brother Joe, in 1981 to a homicide. No killer ever found. I lost my 2nd and only brother Juan on July 1, 2007 also to a homicide. I am 43 now and this poem reminds me of both of them so much. They say that it gets easier with time, well after 30 years I still think of my brother Joe, Juan is constantly on my mind. The holidays don't get any easier either, but I put the smile on my face and hide the pain that I feel, so my children and grandbabies don't have to see the hurt that I feel. Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem. It reminds me of both. R.I.P Joe & Juan.

I'm old, and so is my sister and so was my brother who died this week. Nevertheless my tears taste of salt just as much as someone a third my age.
My brother, sister and myself lived separately in foster homes for ten years growing up. We were teenagers when we finally got to live together. Our childhoods were forfeited by a probate judge.
But the family unit is inviolate and he and I will be together again as soon as I have my "Senior Trip Day". That's when I go from the nursing home to the funeral home.
Do yourself a favor if you fear death. Google "Plato" and "Er". You'll realize we only have our bodies on sort of a lease program, like when you lease a new car.
Do you remember how you got here? No. It was all done for you. Same thing when we die. Dying is like having sex, relax and enjoy it.
Don't "rest in peace", rest in joy because the next life is tons better than this one.

I just received a call from my best friend telling me her son had just died. It took me back to last year when my sister called to say that my brother had died. We were close till he was in High School then it seems time passed and we grew apart we would see each other on occasion for mostly family funerals or if I happened to be in town for a visit. I never really told him I loved him and I wish that now after reading this poem that I had said it more often. Pride stands in the way for so many of us and a death of someone dear strips you of that pride and you wonder "why didn't I tell him more often" just three little words I LOVE YOU. Don't let time pass by another moment tell that special sister, brother, friend, Mom or Dad that you love them because life is too precious to let go.

I lost my brother exactly 9 years ago to this day, in a motorbike accident, he was on his way home from shopping and literally round the corner from the house, no one can say exactly what happened except for that he wasn't speeding, he was dead before he even got to the hospital, there isn't a day that goes by that I do not think of him it was unfortunately his time to leave us, he left behind his wife and 2 children his youngest wasn't even 2 years old yet, so his son was robbed of a wonderful father, he was an amazing guy, who laughed and joked all the time, he might be gone but he is never out of our heart and thoughts... R.I.P. K.P.L

HASAAN AFTAB ATTARI, my brother, lost him 5 months ago in a car accident he was only 15 years 10 months old. The poem depicts what I am really going through even though the time passes by you still are in pain all the time people think you will get over it soon but it is impossible. It has been 5 months there has not been a single day when I didn't cry because I could not get over it, and before this incident I never could understand the pain one goes through on losing such a close family member now we are completely shattered broken and incomplete without him, love you HASAAN

Christina, let me first start off by saying how terribly sorry I am for your sorrow. I lost my brother one month ago. He wasn't shot, or in an ATV accident, his car didn't flip over... he collapsed in the kitchen preparing an insulin shot for my mother, he was 40.. Just 2 years older than me. Not a one of us even knew he had anything wrong with him. It's funny how a headache would lead to such a tragic incident. I didn't even get to say goodbye. In fact, our last conversation (earlier in the day) was left on bad terms. He started the argument but I finished it wish a vengeance. I said things I wish I could take back... more than life itself. I know I'm going to have to move on for my own sake and the sake of my loved ones but knowing a sibling for 38 years, your only sibling you'll ever know in life... *sigh*... I pull up a picture of him every day, stare at it and think about all the times we shared, things we planned that weren't fully executed. Thank you.

I also lost my older brother to a four wheeler accident. at the time he was 14 and I was 11, we always used to fuss and fight but we both new we loved each other, I NEVER thought of losing my brother, I never thought about ANYTHING happening to him. There's not a day that goes by where I don't think about him, he was my Better Half & I've been feeling incomplete without him ever since. but your poem really helped! its the BEST poem I ever read! thanks A lot!

I'm 18 and my brother was had just turned 29 was murdered 4 years now in July and I miss him soooo much. He was an amazing man he was the spitting image of Leonardo DiCaprio sooo handsome. He built casinos (Mandalay Bay, all three towers of the Palms, Luxar, ... just to name a few) in Las Vegas, Nevada for a living I feel really guilty of not - well, missing him at his time of death ... I would see everyone else crying but it seemed not to affect me. ... I miss my brother Jay Joseph SOOOOO incredibly much. I envied him. I wish I could/ could of been him.

Love you J.J.
- Your Little Sister Ade <3

Very touching poem Christina. I lost my brother 3 weeks ago and it's so raw. I'm only 18 and it hurts to think I have got to live the rest of my life without my big brother. It is weird when you lose such an important figure in your life and you're in so much pain but the world keeps turning.

This is a lovely poem.
I lost my older brother 6 months ago... a night fishing accident. Every morning, every day and every night...I have this haunting image of the divers pulling his lifeless body from the water. No sleep (3 hrs a night). Trying to find some type of peace. But this poem here...very touching. I miss and love my brother dearly.

I was searching for a poem online, tonight is 1 year anniversary since my brother died.
your poems expresses similarity between my brother and I.

It's sad to see and know the one you love, left you without saying goodbye. It sad, you cannot talk to them in person, and you cannot smile with them and share a joke.

I missed my brother very much and may his soul continue to rest peacefully. I believe he was taken for a very good reason, and God has grant him a place in heaven. R I P bro! you have not been forgotten.
Love Shakila

Your poem is beautiful ,it tells a story of unending love. I lost my sister to cancer in February and my brother in July, it's hard to go on with a broken heart, but we all must live our dreams, tell people we love them, make each day count in the memory of those we loved and lost, they are with us always and will visit us in our dreams x

I can relate to this story because I recently lost my big brother 2 months ago. He had only just turned 16. I miss him so much cause we were very close and now my world is falling apart. If I could trade places with him I would, he was everything to me and every time I think about him all I want to do is cry. I miss him with all my heart

This is so familiar to me! My brother past away when I was ten he was only 16. He past away in a car accident in August just 3 miles from my house. I just turned 16 and it doesn't feel right that I got to live past the age of him!

My brother passed away today 5 years ago, 28 years old. He hit the curve with his motorcycle, just a stupid mistake and it cost his life. Your poem reflects every feeling I have had and still have got. I would give my live to save his.

Thank you so much for your poem!

My brother passed away two weeks ago tomorrow...
He was nineteen.
It's been hard getting through it, especially since he was always by my side for everything I went through.
This poem described it perfectly...

This was the most amazing poem I have ever read. It is like my whole story and it really touched me and made me cry. when I was 12 my brother died when he was 16. It was a bull riding accident and he got stepped on. The thing that hurt me most was that I never got to say goodbye.

This touched me so much. I lost my Brother 10 years ago. We lost him when he was driving home from school and we ended up burying him on his 17th birthday. I was only 11 when he died, but this poem just sounded so much like me and him and it really made me think back at the good times. Thank you for this poem it brought a smile and a tear to my face.

I can really relate to this, I lost my big brother just a year ago in September... he was my life, he was always there for me I felt very safe with him here although we didn't always get along you could tell we really loved each other, it was a tragic motorcycle accident. he passed away at 20 years old, I don't know how people think we are going to get over these things, because I will never get over the fact that my brother wont be here anymore to give me a hug or tell me he loves me or anything, I won't get over this or forget this like people want me to do they think its so easy , I can't it's that it is my brother it hurts, amazing poem it really got to me. ♥

This poem touched me like no other!!! Christina , you reminded me of how death is near yet far. I fear death, but what I fear more is the death of my dearest ones. We don't realize how much we love them until they are taken away with no return.
Thanks a lot for shaking my dead spirit, " Hey! You're alive. Remember!"
