My Other Half


Never thought it could be you,
I never wanted it to.
My other half of me just disappeared.
Darkness came as fast as you got your angel wings.
My tears will never go away,
My heart feels like it's been thrown away.
When I heard the news,
I fell to my knees.
Not wanting to get up,
I heard you say it'll be okay.
Flying 1200 miles to see if it was true,
Memories running through my head not believing my only brother's life was gone.
I sit there looking at you,
wanting to shake you.
I couldn't see those big brown eyes,
there's not a smile that could ever be replaced.
God, take this pain away from me.
I never got to say goodbye,
I want you to answer me why.
I was too late to take his place,
but all I can do is wait.
Till then I'll be missing him.


IN LOVING MEMORY

I just received the news that my best friend, since grade school, has passed. He knew me better than anyone. We decided it would be best to preserve our friendship by not becoming romantically involved. As we grew older, our differences split us into opposite directions. But, the love always remained...
I immediately burst into tears. We were so young and never quite came around to saying everything we wanted to one other...
Your poem soothes my spirit. Thank you.

My younger and only brother passed away so unexpectedly on New Year's day 2015. No signs no symptoms at all. He was physically fit. The night before (New Year's Eve) we had a family dinner to welcome the new year. In his usual jolly banter, he was joking and laughing with us. The next day, at around 3.00pm, he was gone. The shock was unimaginable. Up to now I have been so disconsolate. I was so grief-stricken big time. He was my rock and we were inseparable.

Hi Norma
I can totally understand what you are going through.
My younger and only brother passed 3 years ago today. We had the best relationship ever and it's still so very hard at times.
I do know he is still with me and watching over me. Little signs like the TV changing channels and lights flickering. All explainable.
Talking to him helps a lot even if I'm angry at why he left me.  
I live for myself and my brother and often say, when I do something special that, this is for John.

My brother passed away 6 months after my dad. He was ill at my dad's funeral but we didn't and he didn't know that. It was cancer, and the sad news after that was my Mum passed away 7 months after my brother. All theses poems touch me big time .
