Brother

November 23, 2018

Brother,

it's not your hat I want to wear

It's the shape of you it holds

I want to keep close and have near

 

Brother,

it's not your coat I want to keep

It's the warmth it gave you

that I want to feel, too, when I weep

 

Brother,

it's not your necklace that I need

but the subtle weight of you

reminding you're still here with me

 

There's an emptiness to everything

I see you in my mind

but with nothing to hold onto

it feels like you've been erased by time

 

Brother,

I'm not ready for you to leave

I just want to feel some comfort

and I'm not sure where to find relief

Moving parts coalesce in...
