sad halloween

the day after Halloween
on a cheap holiday break
i will never forget
they found your body
two tourists
found face down
in the water
the dreaded  call 
i got at work

saying they found
your brother
god i thought
let it be anyone else 
but it was true
we had so much 
more to do
looking off into
the distance
i will always 
remember you
as laughter
filled rooms 

a large part 
of life
not believing 
the truth
we wanted him home
three weeks later
his body arrived
our hearts
were ripped
in two

from the wake
to gods house
brothers with father
linking arms
with my father
at the head 
of the coffin
i am the oldest son
looking into his eyes
saw so much hurt
wailing in agony
feeling so much pain
hurting inside
looking at 
my fathers face

tearing the heart asunder
knowing  in carrying you
i was saying goodbye
my little friend
we have played
our last games together
you have gone before me
to that light
at the end

spirits in the sky
brother i miss you
hope one day
we meet again 
at heavens gate
together we will share
our little stories again
god bless you

    Very sad and deeply touching, I can definitely feel your pain in this poem. I am sure that your brother is looking down on you now, and he is smiling with a proud heart. A beautifully written poem, Liam!...Thank you very much, my friend, for your kind comments, as always! :)

    Sorry for the loss of your brother. I too lost a sister in the month of October. She was found two days later. it is a sad thing, but at least they are in a better place. I am sure that he watches over you from above.... Lucilla

    Because i know from where these thoughts are coming ..I can feel part of your pain..a small part of it and it kills me..It fills my eyes with tears..For a moment it saddens my heart..but knowing that through soul our loved ones remain with us bring comfort to the heart.A tragic happening yet cause We are believers..We know there is not such death..Just a passing over to eternal happness.
