Poem About My Little Brother

This poem is about my little brother. This poem talks about many emotions I go through each day. I miss him greatly!

It Was Just Too Hard To Believe

© Racquel
I never thought,
I would see the day.
When you wouldn't be there,
to show me the way.
You taught me the difference,
between right and wrong.
You always had a way,
but that was before you were gone.
You'd come in my room to play,
To tease and to tickle,
Oh.. you always made me smile.
I don't know how you did it,
I'm not sure I really care.
But I know that you are with me,
I know that you are there.
I cry and I cry,
for what seems like forever.
But I know someday will come,
And we will be together.
One day you were there,
the next you had to leave.
I didn't know what to do,
I didn't know what to believe.
In front of my friends,
I tried not to cry.
But I kept wondering why.
Why this and why that,
why you had to go.
I tried my hardest,
not to let my feelings show.
I couldn't just say,
my brother had died.
I knew nothing would change,
so I kept it all inside.
It took me quite a while,
to accept that you had died.
With that I want to say,
I miss you and goodbye.

  • I lost my little brother only yesterday. I am sitting in the car now with my mom, my dad, my baby cousin, and my grandmother. I woke up yesterday morning only to see his cold, blue face. I miss him greatly. I always will. SO, I hope he enjoys his time beyond the golden gate and its not goodbye, its see you later. SO, my Bryson Lane, I will see you later, I promise.

  • you know I went through the same thing. My brother passed away coming up near 3 years now and I only started coming to terms well a few month back. It's not easy to do but the thought of him gets me by every day coz I made him a promise I would continue on as normal. Not easy but I try. such a good poem. very true and what most people go through.

  • I lost my brother on 21 July 2006 in a freak accident, he would've turned 16 that year. He was the centre of my world since the day he was born as I have waited 10 years for him to come. He was also my best friend despite the 10 year age gap. After his death, I saw my whole family fall apart as if he was the glue that held us together for all those years. Somehow I was able to stay strong all these years, only to now slowly come apart. Suddenly it is as if it happened yesterday. Thanks for all the poems on this site. It inspired me to write down everything I feel in the form of letters addressed to him, an attempt to deal with this huge loss.

  • I too lost my little brother but I lost him at five months old while I was 9 it took me a while before I could even go back to school. This poem describes my life so well that it made me cry in a good way and I will always love this poem.
