Missing You Still


Published by Family Friend Poems November 2007 with permission of the Author.

The amount of tears I've cried
is nothing compared to the pain inside.
The time I've missed you has gone so quick,
Ten years has passed and I'm still ticked
that you're up there and I'm down here,
for many, many years.
My little girl is growing so fast.
I wish you were here to love her laugh.
I miss you, my big brother.
I miss you, my best friend.
Just sitting here in thought
and waiting for the end...

Love you
always in my heart xx

I lost my brother. He was my everything. He was my best friend and my life. I miss him so much. I feel so helpless. I miss him every day, but I can't do anything. This poem makes me cry again. I want to tell my brother how much I miss him and how much I want to see him again.

I lost my brother in Jan 2017. Not a single day has gone when I have not cried for him. My kids miss him too. He was an amazing soul. I don't think I will ever get over losing my brother. Love this poem. I pray God should not give anyone grief of losing loved ones at a young age. Everyone should pass away with natural causes after living a full life.
Missing you, my dearest Brother Arun.

I lost my brother on 24th Aug 2011 when he was 24 yrs old. We were so devastated and never thought it would happen to us. Till today we talk about him. I often see him in my dreams..and never been a day without thinking of him. I'm so pity of my parents esp. We cry when talk about him. missing him a lot.

I lost my only brother on the 4th of January 2012. He was all we had. He had graduated from University in October 2011. He died tragically from complications after an emergency operation they had done to close up internal bleeding from a car accident. He was involved in a car accident in the early hours of new year 2012. I am crushed, devastated confused. I was looking forward to him getting his own family, children etc. I miss him. It's hard everyday to know he is gone. He told me he was going to be OK but didn't make it.

What a wonderful story. My older brother has been missing ten months now. We know that he is dead and there is foul play behind his missing. It has traumatized my family and I. It still seems so surreal and as I am here planning what to say on the first anniversary because there is no body, thank you for just the thoughts and different people who shared. I know god is in control and he will answer our prayers.

This reminds me of my elder brother. He was the best.! I miss him so much. I was his dearest sister. He used to be with me always and used to share his deepest secrets with me. I couldn't even see him for the last time after he had passed away. I want to say to you a thing bro, "I really miss you and I still believe that someday you will come to meet me as you had said one. Please do come. Your dearest little sis is waiting for you." love, Shatz

I loved that poem. It takes me back to June/25/10 when I lost my brother.... He left one morning and never came back. I was at my house when I was told by detectives my 27 yr old brother was found deceased behind a home.... He had a heart attack an up to this date I don't believe that.... But if the cops had something to do with it and lied to my family. I just know there's a god an he will take care of this. Me and my mother miss him dearly he will always be in our hearts an we will wait for the day where we will be with him again. It's been so hard to deal with this tragedy an I still can't believe what's happen an it's going to be a year. I ask god everyday to give us strength an it's so beautiful to know I feel my brother here with us an in dreams he let's us know he's ok.. I just hope one day I can have peace in my heart. For all the sisters n mothers who have lost their sons may god bless you.

I'm trying to find words to put on my brothers grave stone - he was killed 7 months ago when someone ran him over after pulling out on him riding his motorbike.

This poem touched me because - lost my brother also
He was only 8 weeks old. You think family will be around
Forever then things like death happen and you realize that
Life is too short not to treasure all those little moments
You have together. To this day on the anniversary of his death
I play 'tears in heaven' by Eric Clapton. I miss him so much
He was my best friend at such a young age and meant
So much to me. - love you little bro an angel like you
Was too good for earth and I pray that you like heaven
Until we can some day be reunited.

I really like your poem my older brother pasted away 5 months before my wedding day, as we were only little kids our dad past away my brother only aged 16 then gave us a life we will never forget, he left school to work so he can help my mum. It has been 2 and half long sad years and I don't think we will ever forget him, he was in hospital for a month on life support he was very critically ill . I really love him and he is truly missed and we need still need him till this very day.

This is a very beautiful poem. I lost my brother November 1st of 2008 & my daughter is 5 now & still asks about her Uncle. She wants to know why her Uncle & Daddy(who she also lost 3 months after her Uncle) are taking so long to get back from Heaven. I don't think I will ever get over losing my brother & daughter's Father. They are the 2 missing pieces to my heart♥
