My Brothers

My Brothers On my hand I have five fingers and like that I have five brothers. My fingers are all different and like that, so are my brothers. The first one is the oldest of all. He is good and has a heart of gold. He is a Reverand. His life was not easy growing up, but he was always close to God. Galdino is his name. The second brother is Pedro. He is big, tall and strong. He has a good wife. Two daughters and a son they raised. The third brother - we call him Chuy. He is the quiet one He don't talk much. He believes it's better to keep his mouth shut. He also has a good wife. They raised a family of five. They had three boys and two girls. The youngest passed away this year. His family is his pride and joy. The fourth brother - goes by the name of Balde - short for Baldemar. He is handsome,no doubt. With his family he seems to live a happy life. About the fifth brother - what can I say, he is the youngest of all. His name is Johnny - he did 20 years in The Speacial Forces. A German wife brought back to the good old U.S.A. I love my brothers- one and all. They are all different you see, but that's the way that brothers are suppose to be....

    this is a poem you can show with pride to your five brothers. FIVE is my lucky number, Sweetie and five brothers would have been so neat for me if I had had them!! But my mother had five girls, so that is pretty lucky too!!!

    This is a sweet write about all your brothers! I only have one brother, he is younger than me, he has a good wife and twins, a boy and a girl! I also have a sister, a younger sister, she is the baby in the family, and she is like the lost sheep, but has come back to the family hopefully to stay! I am like you, they are all precious to me, I want nothing more than to be with my family! Especially my wife and child, they are my whole world! This poem meant a lot to me, I really enjoyed reading it!

    Thanks for liking my poem. It is nice to have a family, but sometimes they get seperated.
