Never thought it could be you,
I never wanted it to.
My other half of me just disappeared.
Darkness came as fast as you got your angel wings.
My tears will never go away,
My heart feels like it's been thrown away.
When I heard the news,
I fell to my knees.
Not wanting to get up,
I heard you say it'll be okay.
Flying 1200 miles to see if it was true,
Memories running through my head not believing my only brother's life was gone.
I sit there looking at you,
wanting to shake you.
I couldn't see those big brown eyes,
there's not a smile that could ever be replaced.
God, take this pain away from me.
I never got to say goodbye,
I want you to answer me why.
I was too late to take his place,
but all I can do is wait.
Till then I'll be missing him.
IN LOVING MEMORY

Hi. My best friend and baby brother died Sunday, January 21, 2018. Just two months ago. This poem is an exact reflection of the way I felt seeing him dead on the hospital bed. He died...
