Back in April of '68

my mom gave birth

to one of the cutest

most treasured gifts

my brother

now let me tell you

he and I

have not always been so close

for those times

I am truly sorry

but that is in the past

now we are adults

with lives of our own

both busy with day to day life

he with his kids

and his beautiful wife

me with work

and my sweetie

we talk on the phone

sometimes getting lost

in our own little world

he is so like my mom

at times it really blows my mind

he can give me a look

that makes me have chills

it's like looking

right into her eyes

then there are times

he is just my brother

a friend and confidante

he will not be happy

with me for writting this

but I had to get these things out

I love him with all my heart

and would not trade

his love and respect

for anything in this world.

Renee' How could he or anyone possibly be mad at you?? This is a sweet and well-written tribute to your brother! I hope that he is honored, for I would be if one of my siblings wrote for me :) I know this feeling of love for a brother. I have one that I love a lot, too :) A beautiful poem, Renee'
