I Miss


Published: February 2006

I miss you,
I miss the loud music coming
from your room,
I miss the warmth of knowing
You're just a call away,
I miss the way we fought and
I miss seeing your big bright
I miss getting kicked out of
your room,
I miss seeing you here and
I miss cooking you breakfast
lunch and dinner,
I miss hearing you come in
at night,
I miss making you wear your
seat belt,
I miss holding your hand to
I miss your smell,
I miss you with all my might,
I miss the way we would fight,
I miss my brother,
I miss my friend,
I miss you I love you and that's

My little brother was shot and murdered while standing right next to me this past August. The man who shot him intended to shoot me but my brother pushed me out of the way and gave his life to save mine. I love and miss my brother so much. I think about him everyday and I can't wait for the day we meet again. My little brother is my hero, my protector, and my guardian angel. He was only 26 years old with so much more life to live and so many more things to accomplish. Unfortunately he was taken from me within a blink of an eye. I stay strong by knowing god makes no mistakes and my brother and I will someday meet again.

It hasn't been 24 hours yet since my baby brother past away. I already miss him more the words can express. He was only 49 and cancer took him in 90 days from diagnosis to death. I never even thought of him going first not once until the diagnosis. We were so close I've always had him to depend on. I don't know what I am going to do with out him but I sure hope he gets to watch from where he is.
I miss him now and always will. I love you Carl. Your sister Suzette

I lost my brother the day after Thanksgiving 2011 to a tragic accident. He was 3 yrs. older than me. We were very close. This poem speaks to me because we shared a love for loud music, we fought and bantered with each other and told each other our secrets. He was my best friend. I miss not hearing his voice. I miss his sarcasm & quick wit. I miss our family traditions. I know I will see him on the other side. Thank you for sharing your poem. It has brought joy to my heart & reminded me of some of the greatest memories we shared.

This poem is heart touching. I lost my baby brother 9 months ago he just turned 24. He was in a bad car accident. I don't sleep at night, my heart is so empty. I think back the Sunday he died what could I have done I was suppose to protect him. I miss him so much even after 9 months I call him, text him, Facebook him. I dream of him weekly it feels so real like I can really see him, feel him,talk to him. Some say I'm crazy but I'll never get over this. It hurts so bad not a day passes by I don't cry I love you Lloyd forever in my heart.

I lost my big brother when I was 11 and he was 15. We were best friends. He died of an epileptic fit right in front of me 32 years ago on 25th of August. I remember it like it was yesterday. I remember how handsome he was and how we both had the same big eyes. When he died, a part of me died, and I never got over it. RIP, big bro. I think of how he would have kids or a wife and how we'd go to the cinema together. I love you; I'll miss you always.

This poem made me cry. It makes me remember my brother who passed away nine years ago when I was 12 years old. He was the only one who could understand me and who made laugh and feel peace and happy and now without him I feel lost and lonely. I know that he is in a better place and I wish I can see him again :'(

I lost my brother Mar 2012. He was involved in a car accident and died at the scene. Oh, this poem just tell/reminds me of what we had. There is no day, I can't think of him. We were only two. Back there I know he is in a better place. He loved music, was so funny. Before he passed on, there was this song he loved dared by Zahara (Umthwalo wam uyangisinda) meaning my burden is too much for me. I think God took him away to be free from all those burden. I will always miss you my BROTHER. We share so many secrets and he could do stupid things and the only person, he could tell is me. I know time will heal, though its not easy.

"My brother Monroe Bedonie passed away last year March 11, 2010. The day I got out of school I received a phone call from another brother of mines he called in need for help for our older brother has passed I stood still in a painful feeling, feelings I can't explain I got home I couldn't believe my eyes I saw him lying there with everyone crying. I laid him in my arms I never wanted to let go. I burst into tears trying to wake him begging god not to take him begging that I needed him but it was time for him to go. Letting him go was the hardest thing I ever done in my lifetime but he's in a better place now. I love him and I still miss him. This present day I still can't believe he's gone. I still feel he's here with me like he never left so I know how you feel. Just to let you know you didn't lose your brother he's still right there next to you:)

My younger brother died in a car accident 6 months ago he was only twenty years old the driver was intoxicated and survived my brother was the passenger he was pronounced dead at the scene. This is a good poem because it reminds me of everything him and I went through in life.

i am so very sorry for your loss. It infuriates me that people drive intoxicated knowing they can risk lives. Hopefully the driver went to jail and you and your family got the justice for your brother. Again, I am so sorry for the loss of your brother.
Love and best wishes, Bridget

My brother hung himself this July a few days before my birthday he was 17 I am 16 we are so close in age, We never really fought, We were like best friends, It is so hard knowing he is gone forever, Hard to know that he isn't just gone a little but for a long time, I can't wait to go to heaven and see him at the gate for me and seeing his big smile it will just make me the happiest person ever, I really wish he could come back, He lived in foster care most of his life, But he came to moms every weekend, We would go outside and play football on the road, I would always ask him to, I miss it :( Boy do I miss it like crazy, The day I was told what happened I just did not believe it I fell to the ground then, we had to go to the crime scene, And no one saw him, He was hanging in the hot weather for 2 days because no one cared enough to go look for him. It is so hard, because I have that picture in my head :( That's all

While I was browsing the FamilyFriendPoems web site, I ran across Hanna Richard's entry of July 14th, 2011. She happens to be from the same city where I live, Opelousas, La. I almost lost my younger brother to brain cancer going on five years. God has take care of him. He is doing very well. Sorry to hear of the death of your brother and yes you will get to see him again and all those you love and lost along the way. That will give something to look forward to. Meanwhile, hold on to the memories that are in your heart. Take care and may God bless you. Rod Fuselier

Hi. My name is Hannah. On March 24,2011, my older brother Brandon S. Richard, was killed in a car accident. I was and still am devastated! He was 31 and I was 12 when it happened. I'm now 14 and I just have faith that I will see him again. It's the only way I can get through this bad dream that I seem to be living. This poem means so much to me. Thank you for writing it!

I have a lot of brothers but there was only one that could understand me . I was 11 and he just turned 15 he died in a car accident and this poem reminds exactly of him and I did a poem like this one a little bit different.

The poems on this site remind me of my precious moments with my brother. I was 19 when he passed away ( he was only 21 at that time) . Sometimes memories are so sweet that it creates happiness and sometimes it makes us cry. And today is the day he passed away. I cry so much when I remember him . I love him.

Hi, my names Rosy my brother ran away when I was 11 years old, we did know where he had gone! I'm now 13, and 3 month ago, 2 days before my Birthday, we got a call! My brothers body had been found in California. He had been shot three times. My whole world fell, and I can't stop crying, and now my birthday is the worst day of my life! This poem just explains how much I loved my brother! Even though he was a total ass, for some reason I still loved him! And I just can't take it anymore when people at my school say, Oh, "I totally know how you feel!" When really they have NO CLUE, and I just have wanted to find someone that REALLY knows what I'm going through :(
and if you hold on, I will hold on with you! :)

My only brother died on September 3, 2010. He died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 47. He was 9 years older than me and when I was little I thought he was a rock star. I'm so sad I will miss out on another 30 years with him. He used to always sing "Dance Little Sister" by the Rolling Stones to me. My mom is devastated and our family will never be the same. It's only been 6 months and I still think of him all the time.

I'm only 14 and my brother died in a car crash and he had only just turned 16 it is so hard to deal with this because we were so close and that is what makes it harder to handle the first few days after it happened I just broke down in tears because I don't normally let people know how I'm feeling the only one that I tell stuff to is my dad because he means everything to me since my brother died because he is the one that has helped me handle all this because it is hard and I just couldn't do it on my own anymore

Like Kish, my little brother also passed away just few days before his wedding in 2008. It was an accident, three freaks were drunk and were driving their bikes and lost the control, their bike flew and hit my brother standing across the street. I still curse that day, that place and that time when he was at wrong place at wrong time. I miss him so much, he used to call me STAR and used to look up to me for everything, for him I was the sister who could do anything in the world, I miss him everyday but pretend as if he is just on a world tour where I cannot reach him, I hope he knows how much I love him and miss him every moment. Love you Aakash

My brother passed away December 2009, on his wedding day. I wish he could come back and wake me up from this awful dream I'm having. I miss him so much, a day doesn't pass without thinking and calling his number. I love him so much, I miss him when he used to call me STAR, when I had to lie to his girlfriends about his whereabouts, when I had to cover for him. I miss you Buti so much. I love you

Its nice to know there is someone out there who put pen to paper and wrote such a touching poem. I have lost a brother yet he is still there. Unfortunately he has a mental disorder and lately I've found myself missing him a lot.
