My Brother At War

Published: February 2006

I am so very proud
Of how he turned out to be
He is out there standing his ground
Fighting for our country
I could not ask for a better man
To be in my family
I am glad God had this plan
For me to have a brother like thee
We may not have got along
And we may have had our fights
But we turned out to be strong
And stand up for what is right
We got raised by the best
And I know my brother will agree
They put us to the test
To make sure we could be all we could be
I just want my brother to know
That deep down in my heart
There is a special glow
That gets bigger when we're apart
It is a glow of love for you
That can not be explained
And it will go through
Anything that gets in its way
So just remember this
That I am always here
And I will always wish
That we will always be near

I found out recently that one of my brothers had joined the Army as soon as he left school. I am so very proud of him but it has made trying to contact him to express this more than difficult if I am honest. No matter what, I have always admired the hard work, grit and sheer bravery of our armed forces all of my life but now that I know my own sibling was part of this huge sacrifice and brotherhood, my heart swells with pride. I know not if he is well but I pray that he is. He is my hero, my brother.
