Missing Big Brother Poem

I wrote this poem about my big brother who passed away when he was only 14. And I just don't know how I can live without him. He taught me almost everything I know, and now I feel like I can't achieve anything without him.

Can't Live Without You

So, I am sitting here, writing this poem to you,
because right now it is all I can do.
I write all these poems from what I feel,
all these feelings I have are too real.

You were the only person I looked up to,
for everything that I wanted to do.
But now you are gone,
and I just can't move on.

All the things I learned from you
are the things I want to do,
but I can't because without you I'm not good enough.
I'm not confident or tough.

I want to be there by your side,
with you for the rest of my life.
I want to be in your arms,
where I could never be harmed.

You were my big brother,
And I never would have asked for another.
And you were too young to die.
I wasn't ready to say goodbye.

I got hurt by a guy I had a crush on, took me 17 days to believe he did. Everyday I think of nobody else but him, what he did to me and how disappointed I am. But one thing that seem to make sense because I felt it knew what I was going through was poetry. It made me alive again, got me thinking if he really was worth the tears, sleepless nights and emotional strain and social withdrawal. I'm healthy now because poetry was my breakthrough.
