I wrote this poem for my brother who was tragically deceased on 28 Feb 2013. I felt a need to make it public as a remembrance to him and a way in which to honour him as he was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.

In Memory of My Brother

Cherish your brother, don’t take him for granted
For things can happen that will leave you haunted
A brother’s love endures for life
Filled with delight and laughter and with strife
A brotherly covenant ought to be flaunted

The moments we shared and memories we made
Are forever within me and never shall fade
You are my brother and always will be
Perhaps not in flesh but embedded in memory
Tonight on a holy pillow, your head to be laid

Today marks the term of our earthly era
My brother, eternity has called you nearer
Fear not for I know that the pearly gates
Are celebrating for a champion with a clean slate
My brother, to me you could not be dearer

Touching love and tribute, Linton. We never know when we leave this blessed place. We play different roles in this life for a reason and will know later the true import - siva
