My Dear Brother

You were my brother, by blood we know
My partner in crime, so to speak
I had your back, you had mine

We had our fights, then we made up
You could pick on me, vice versa
Don't no one dare start trouble with you
If they did, they had me to deal with

I'm a biker today, because of you
That first biker bar, you brought me to
I walked in, then realized who I was

We argued, fussed and fought
Who would have their Harley first
You had a few rice burners it's true

At least you had two wheels to ride

The years came and went
You traveled the coast
Years later you moved in with me
You came in with bad news on life

You said your time had been cut short
I felt as though I got hit with a brick
Although we were not speaking to Mom & Dad
I thought they should know what's come of you

I wrote them a letter, telling them your time was short
Their response was, you were back on drugs
It was hard to understand, they did not believe
I wrote back to tell them, visit him at the VA Hospital

Mom didn't go, Dad did so
He walked right by you, not recognizing
You lost so much weight, he did not know you

They found I wasn't lying

You were put in their care, till your end days
I'm sorry I didn't visit
Not on good terms with mom and dad

You left this world, for a better place
I then got my Harley, in memory of you
I love you my dear brother, with all my heart
I know you ride with me, when I'm in the wind

Forever my brother, forever my friend
I love you always, until we meet again
