How You Make The Stars Hush

There is something about The way you face your day With a heart of gold And such a giving way. There is something about The way you endure your pain As if the stroke Didn’t harm your brain There is something about The life you live Loving like there will be no tomorrow And living to forgive There is something about The brother you are And the son you have been That makes us more proud by far It is everything about The garden you grow With sweat and tears As the fruits to others you bestow It is everything about A body half paralyzed That can produce gifts of woodwork That leaves us mesmerized. It is everything about Your speech so limited Yet communication For you is unlimited. It is everything about Your inner soul That has inspired me To be so much more It is you my brother In all that you do That have made the stars Hush for me too. I have been blessed to have such a brother Contest: How you make the stars hush Justin Bordner
