My Brother And True Friend


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006 with permission of the author.

At first I have to admit I was jealous but just for a short bit
Mom and dad looked at you with pride
My jealousy made me feel put aside
For this I feel no shame, that's just a child's game
As time went on nature came through my pride, love and a bond grew
Still only my brother not yet a friend
I was your big sister to the end
Soon my childish jealousy I overcame, I'm not saying there was none
He just wants you to play, I can still hear mom say
But he's too little I would say he doesn't know how to play and he's always in my way
Mom he follows me around all day he's too little for my big girl play
He's your little brother and he doesn't just want to play your his big sister it's your duty mom would say, to show your brother the right way
When he grows up for all this, with his love and loyalty he will pay.
So please my daughter show your brother how to play.
Pay back will be yours in time not so far away it was one of my life's biggest tolls to play for you a good role.
But from that day to my life's end you are not just my brother but my life's greatest friend.
