    If only
    i could've told you the days wouldn't always be long
    that you sang the sweetest song that your family'd ever heard
    but we'd never hear another song so sweet
    without you

    If only
    i could've flashed a snapshot of your baby's 2nd birthday
    And her mommy's 24 hour days that would last for weeks
    without you

    i would've told you what it would be like to not have you here
    but i didn't know
    never thought i'd be thinking about living
    without you

    Should i have told you
    that if you left too soon
    that we couldn't change the world
    but the world would keep turning anyway
    in a different direction
    without you


    If only i could've helped you see that you had more than even you knew or dreamed

    Should i have told you that you always had 'it'
    from day one
    straight shot
    with no game added
    just talent, strength and heart

    Maybe i should've told you more
    Maybe you would've believed it
    Maybe you would've done it another way
    and we wouldn't have to be doing it
    without you

    If only you had believed
    i might have tried to believe

    And you'd be here.



    For my lil' brother, Gus Jr. (10/25-69-1/30/02) who's now soaring with the eagles. R.I.P. :heart:

    Thank You Amirah

    For sharing a very personal part of your life. Some very deep words were birthed from a very painful situation...but as you said,
    he's flying high with eagles.

    Your sista in poetry...Joyce
