    It is my will to continue to strive
    For some kind of perfection while on earth
    That puts me ahead of the game
    I can't see the light
    at the end of the tunnel but I
    know that it is there

    I see it clearly everytime I look in your eyes
    the way you smile at me when
    You know that I am in pain
    I know that you just
    Want to see me happy

    I go harder everyday for you
    You are my reason for being the person I am
    Seeing you come from so much doubt
    I am convinced that it is possible
    To walk this earth in happiness

    You have shown me that all things are possible
    All I have to do is reach for the
    highest of highs
    Never forget my lowest of lows
    And be truer than true to me first
    Then the world will see the star in me


    Inspiration comes standard now that you are here
    I thank you every day in my own unique way because you have made being true to me the easiest part of my life.

    I love you more than any collection of words could ever say or be written. Your strength in your youth has been MY WILL TO CONTINUE.

    This is for my brother who almost lost his life before he had even begun to live it. You are the reason why i have no problem inspiring someone to live for the greater work inside of them. Your life is my constant reminder that defying the odds is a challenge that builds the character of a person,as well as the soul.

    Thank you I felt like I owed it to my brother to give his flowers while he is yet living no one knows what tomorrow brings.

    This was a beautiful dedication.
    About a year ago I almost lost one of my brothers in a terrible car accident, and it really changed our lives together.
    We were never close and now I value every minute I spend with him.
    it's a shame that it has to take something like that for me to realize it, but i'm blessed that i did before it was too late.

    :smooch: Thank you for this piece and reminding me to call everyone i love and tell them just that. :smooch:

    This was so heartfelt. I could feel in every line how much your brother means to you. Your words conveyed the unbreakable bond that is shared. Much love for this.

    Alizentang,I'm glad that I could bring to mind how much you also value the ones you love. My brother almost checked out eleven years ago about twenty minutes after he checked in. I barely knew him and hadn't seen him, yet I felt connected to him.

    Poetic,thank you also I do plan on living my life for today, tomorrow and yesterday, for my brother's sake. HE gives me my everyday strength to believe I can.

    Watz, thank you for recognizing the bond I share with my brother. It may not always be evident to the untrained eye but I would give my own life just to see my brother live his to the fullest.

    Thank you 1poetsought. My mother raised me to pass on the gifts you receive. My brother was a gift to me so I offer up my poetry as a gift and hopeful inspiration to everyone else.

    :spinstar: "To thine own self...be true" :spinstar: ...

    Your are a treasure indeed, to behold. We know not how far a touch goes, ...as your wonderful brother touched your life,
    you touched ours...and in return, someone here will touch....yet another,
    And be that as it may...
    the feelings roll like a snowball, throughout life.
    thanks for the feelings,
    it wears quite well.​
