Brother Death Poem

Murder Of A Brother

This poem was written for my older bother Christopher who died on June 26, 2007. I was walking down the street when I heard a gun shot from the distance. I quickly ran to my house when only a couple feet away I saw my brother lying lifelessly on the pavement. It instantly sent a pang of sadness. I always loved him, and I will until I meet him up there...

Each and every day I think of you.
From the sound of your voice to the sparkle in your eyes.

You always had a way with words.
To me you knew everything,
until one fateful day.

That day I saw you on the ground,
without life was a life changing sight.
I cried my eyes out to ease my pain.

The day I saw you dead will be the day I will never forget.
the day will scar me until it is my time to join you.

The voice that once spoke is now silenced.
The cute smile that lit up will never be seen,
but only in my memory.
I have always loved you and I always will,
Christopher,
This is my poem to you.

I'm sorry for your loss. I, too, lost my older brother to murder on Halloween 2017. I know the pain you speak of. It's physical, it's real, and it won't heal. I didn't see my brother lifeless after the incident, but his body in that casket days later was enough. I can only imagine your experience. I think of him as much as I can so that it all remains fresh. Sometimes the memories are so good that my heart aches, aches due to the fact that I know past memories are as good as they will get.
