    I remember holding you in my arms
    It felt like my soul could hear angels singing psalms
    From that moment I knew you were different from any other
    Words could not express how much I love ya
    I wish I could have lost my life instead of you, my dear brother
    I remember when heard you say your first word
    I saw hope and truth in your eyes
    a pure and untainted soul that had never told any lies
    As we grew I remember wanting you to learn from my mistakes and not be like me,
    I wanted so much more for you, but you just couldnt see
    You followed my footsteps and started claiming set
    wanting to be down,
    and you got there
    Laying in my arms once again but this time on the cold ground ,
    I couldnt stop the bleeding
    I remember your last words just like I remember your first
    Looking in my eyes pleading
    for god to let you live and
    asking me to forgive
    But you never did hear me say it was my fault
    I should have got us away
    or taught you better, if i didnt fail you would still be here today
    I wish you could know my dear little brother that I did my best
    and my heart will never stop crying deep in my chest
    until I am with you again when my souls free,
    an my bodys laid to rest,
    So its me who is sorry.

    First of all, I'd like to welcome you to Destee. Your words really touched me.
    As much as you feel he followed in your footsteps, we cannot completely control the actions of others, even those who we love with all our heart, and I feel so much love here. Can't change the past, but you can take steps to change your future. Very emotively posed, and I am sorry for your loss.

    man

    my condolences

    don't let this bring yourself down

    it's hard to lose a loved one

    trust me

    but you must

    live and learn

    you know what the mistakes were

    and learn from this

    there's always a chance to show love

    in memory of your lil bro

    just try to show people that you have love in your heart


    peace poet
