A Brother Lost

Thoughts come to mind
not everyday, but enough
that my thoughts of the past
of a brother gone from me,
a brother who chose to be lost
living in his own private world

This is his right and choice, but
pain from within my soul remains,
pain of anger and confusion as to
why life dealt us the hand of departure,
my memories come again as I remember
moments when my big brother was there

I shall contain fondness in my heart and
remember him, for nothing in this world can take
my memories of the good that we shared as children
from me, love that rids the pain of hell we endured,
my sisterly vision sees him within my mind with love
that remains in my heart for my brother - Bobby
