Brother Death Poem

I lost my youngest brother suddenly. I couldn't sleep one night, so I wrote this poem to read at his service. He was born on my 5th birthday and we always joked around that we couldn't ever get rid of each other. I would say, "I can't lose you, can't break you, can't sell you at a yard sale, and I can't throw you away, so we're stuck with each other." He would say the same. If I only knew I would lose him so suddenly to death. 10/14/1970 to 08/09/2018

For My Brother


Published: October 5, 2018

You left without
Gone so fast.
Now all we have
Are memories
Of our past.

You are loved
By so many.
You might not
Have known,
But in our hearts
Is where
You have grown.

The memories
I have throughout
The years
Will last forever
Laughter and tears.

We shared our
Since I was five.
My wish now
Will be
To have you
Back healthy
And alive.

I will miss you
Oh so much.
So will all
The lives that
You have touched.

I can't say
I can't accept
Your death.
You will live in my heart
Until my last breath.
