God created older brothers with a particular goal in mind,

Someone to guide you through the paces, luckily, you were mine.

The bridge through troubled waters, the lighthouse on the shore,

The shelter from the elements, the provider, and so much more.


Brother, you have been that for me, never yielding in your stance,

Oh how I wish I would have thanked you, when I had the chance.

I learned so much from you, I tried to imitate you as a kid,

But few could walk in those footsteps, or accomplish what you did.


I watched this Superman in full attire, flying high with such grace,

With God’s eternal love clearly showing on the outline of his face.

Though his battle may have ended, lessons he taught me still ring true,

There was never a greater bond, then the love I feel for you.


Rest in peace my dear, beloved brother, until we meet again,

Where I’ll still watch you with the amazement that’s always been.

Goodbye is only temporary, these tears soon will dry,

When brothers will be united on a beautiful heavenly sky.

Author's Notes:
I lost my oldest brother this past year.
RIP Gary, Love you always
