Memories

My memories are what I have left,
and a lesson I will not forget.

The time has come when time is no more
and all that's left was once before.

The memories so dear and true,
those memories of me and you.

Although we fell and stumbled at times,
all those hills were necessary climbs.

All the times when your heart shined through
are the greatest memories I have of you.

I will always remember you, brother of mine.
in my heart I will keep you, so I will be fine.

I will go forward with my head up high
It might be hard; I cannot lie.

But in my heart you will be,
moving forward, you with me.

Our son was killed in a car accident on 8/20/2017. He has a twin brother, Joe. This poem touched me. This was a tremendous loss for the entire family, although his brother has a connection with Eric no one else can fathom, a connection that happened even before birth. I am going to share this with him. I hope it can in some way help him deal with the pain of the loss of his brother and best friend.

On April 6, 2016, my son was walking down the railroad tracks. He passed out and was run over by a train. This was so devastating, and these poems help me. It's been almost a year, and my heart aches for him.
