My Brother - A Remembrance of Sorts
My brother is engraved in my mind, age 23.
Always older, wiser, more daring, more foolish, a young man. My brother is perched on my shoulder,My conscience, my scourge, my curse, my devotion, a lance.My brother is lost, I must find him, for his sake For my sake, for our sanity, our brevity has left its stanch. My brother has decided, that this time is finalNo apologies, just finality, our heartache to implant.My brother is engraved in my mind, age 23I would wish him good luck, if I could, for all the things that he planned. My brother is a powder in a canister, no belonging Just a feeling, dusty memories where I once gave a damn My brother is engraved in my mind, age 23Always bolder, filled with certaintude, step ahead, one last chance.For Michael, Maribeth, Tom & Milagro Bill Eldridge
