Ode To A Brother

So many days I wonder,
Why did it have to happen to you?
Why were we selected for this task?
Brother, as I look at you, I wonder.
If you could speak what would you say to me?

Would we share jokes?
Would you give me brotherly advice?
I’d give the world to know you better.
Maybe, just maybe, some day you will be able to read this letter.

Your muscles may not work in smooth motion
But that doesn’t bother me.
You may not be able to see
But that doesn’t bother me.
You lift me up when my world collapses.
You are the strength that I can only hope to be.

You may not be able to move around gracefully
But that doesn’t bother me.
Just your being here is enough for this little brother.
I hope you know this through the wordless emotions that we speak.

Though we may always wonder what could have been,
We are blessed to have each other.
Through the sad and happy times,
You are my best friend.

We’re in this until the end.
We are bonded by blood until the end of time
And I wouldn’t want anyone other than you
As my brother.
