    God gave me an angel
    In the form of you
    Answering a childish prayer
    With wisdom
    And unforseen understanding
    I prayed for you
    God gave me you
    My own little brother......

    Yet God took you
    Seeing that I needed you on the other side
    Fighting for me
    Fighting with me
    Being
    The unseen encouragement
    From which I drew strength
    In times
    Like these

    Yet i still wonder
    What it would be like
    To love you with honesty
    To mentor you
    To protect you
    To show you how the world really is
    Yet God
    In His understanding
    Saw fit
    To keep you untainted
    From this fallen world
    And somehow I'm grateful

    See this way I never lose you
    To girls
    To the world and all its temptation
    To sibling rivlaries
    To the inevitable change
    That humans go through
    So this day(your would have been birthday)
    I tell you I love you still
    And praise my God
    For my angel


    *Dedicated to David. He would have been 14 today, but instead he's infinite.
    I'll always love you David
    From your big brother
    Twision.

    much emotion felt here,
    hold your loved ones near.

    you'll have peace of mind.

    When you move through life each day, when you reach out to touch a rose, a petal, a leaf or the soil of life...remember always that your dear sweet brother is always with you...his spirit will never die...not ever.
    He knows how much you love and miss him and he's ever so proud to have a wonderful brother like you.
    thank you for sharing this with us.

    This was so beautiful, written from the heart. David knows your feelings of him, in a way that we can't really understand.
