A Brother Is For Life

Written by: Kate Flatley

Has time diminished the pain?
it seems only yesterday
you suddenly
ripped our hearts out
and took a piece with you
to another place another time

My heart still bleeds
the wound is deep
I see you
only in my sleep

I lost your love when I lost you
a brother is for life
yours was short
how did you feel about that?
being ripped away
from less than half a life
a wife, two children less than five
and you, no longer alive

My heart still bleeds
the wound is deep
I hope tonight to see you
in my sleep
