My Brother the Angel

There is also another thought that comes to me when I think of a tear.  My mother.   Or just any mother who may have lost a child.  I had another brother I've not written about.  He was younger than me.  I don't really remember him.  But I remember the tears.  I remember the sadness.  I never really thought about it much, until one night I was babysitting Autumn and just could not even fathom losing a child.  How it would almost take my heart if something happened to her.  i wrote this about my brother Daryl shortly after.

My Brother the Angel

A beautiful face I never saw, but a soul that will live in my heart forever.

Were you perfect when you came?  I saw you in my dreams.

I saw you in her eyes.  I saw you in her heart.  I saw you in her tears.

I know you must have gone straight to heaven when you left us.

That's where I pictured you, a perfect angel baby.

Maybe one day little brother...

I will hold you and tell you how much I love you.

Maybe you were just to perfect for this world.

You will always be innocent and pure.

I never realized how much she must have hurt until I saw our brother

Lance bring home his little baby Autumn, with the perfect little face.

Her black hair like I always heard you had.

She is so beautiful, unable to imagine my life without her.

I am sorry to hear about your brother.  And I am sorry that you don't really remember him.  That must have been a really hard time on your family back when you lost him.
