Dear brother

Dear brother


When I sob in sadness

you see me with worry

saying that you’re sorry

though you have nothing to be


When I laugh in happiness

you smile with delight

dimples deep, eyes filled with light

though my happiness is not yours


Sometimes I am relieved

that you are my brother

that you are never leaving me


Often I am sad

that you are not beside me

that you are far away from where I am


But always,


I am thanking

that I have someone to pray for

that I have someone who prays for me


Dear brother, I confess

I love you more than I love myself

I love you so much more than you can expect
