Brotherly Love

Curling into him feeling his tiny breaths,
Looking over him to stable his dreams
Wondering when he will talk
Gazing at his tiny fingers
So life like but so small
I am his guide and I will protect
I will guide his ambitions, dreams and questions
An oyster to a pearl enclosed
Warmth to a hand comfortably hiding
Pocketed inside for rest from the world
What are you dreaming my baby brother
Know I will always be your side
Two soldiering stars together shining from up above
Experiencing the pure beauty of  something called Brotherly love

Claire Burke
(Brotherly Love)
