Come Back Home

©

Published: February 2006

As you left, you said you'd be back
And promised that we would be together again.
Visions of the future,
Of all the fun times you had promised, filled my head
As we bid farewell.

Come back, Brother.
Don't leave me alone in this world.
We're related by blood,
Brothers and best friends forever.
Don't break that bond.
Come back home to me.

Your face brightens my day,
And your voice is music to me,
Your smile is a treasure,
And your love and kindness are forever,
And I'll miss all that while you are gone.

Come back, Brother.
Don't leave me alone in this world.
We're related by blood,
Brothers and best friends forever.
Don't break that bond,
Come back home to me.

You're the friend God sent me,
An angel who'd look after me.
Heaven sent you here,
So why leave me now?
Our fun never seemed to end,
And our laughter filled the air.

Come back, Brother.
Don't leave me alone in this world.
We're related by blood,
Brothers and best friends forever.
Don't break that bond,
Come back home to me.

As time passes by
And memories fade away,
I'll find a way to keep you alive,
And I'll hope forever
Someday you'll come home to me.

Come back, Brother.
Don't leave me alone in this world.
We're related by blood,
Brothers and best friends forever.
Don't break that bond,
Come back home to me.

You are my brother,
You are my friend.
We're linked together,
And I'll always watch out for you,
Because I know you watch out for me,
No matter where you are.

Come back, Brother.
Don't leave me alone in this world.
We're related by blood,
Brothers and best friends forever.
Don't break that bond,
Come back home to me.

I lost my Bro/Cousin Carlos Santos Sr. July 2012. We grew up together playing and fighting. In our adult years, we remain close, confided in one another. When I last saw him it was only his truck leaving my driveway. I said "oh it's Carlos! oh watch He'll come back. He never did. Three hours later I got the news; that he had been shoot. Two day later he died. Now I wish he had came back home to my house. I love my big brother, and wish he could just come home
