A poem about my old brother. I thought I would write a few line about my elder brother. We get on so well as do many brothers and sisters.

My Old Brother


Waiting for my old brother, for he is slow,
He can’t keep up, like he used to, you know.
For when he was young, he had such vigour.
But now he has glasses and fuller figure.

Where once he had hair, it has now all gone.
His smooth shiny head reflects the sun.
A trick, often asked for by his granddaughter,
Is the one with the teeth, in the glass of water.

Once a week, my old Bro and I, leave the sticks,
Go to town for a drink, then go to the flicks.
Two can get in for one – on pensioner days,
He has plenty of uses in so many ways!

Thank you Denise O. You have only one family and those, along with your close friends are such treasures in your life....

Glad you had a chuckle at this one Bev, and thank you for your lovely comment too. Brothers ( and sisters ) are one of a kind aren't they...
