To My Baby boy Who Never Knew How Much I loved You

As I laid In that Bed the day they told me you were dead, I felt like I had lost my soul , sitting there all a LOWN , a day doesn’t go by I don’t see your face and remember why I still find Grace. Through the darkness and even in the fall you were there to pull my head up when I felt like a drowning soul . I wish I could go back to the red blanket night and hold your head like I did for the last time. I will find you whenever I see light , because your the soul that brings back my light. I saw then and I see you now , no words can describe our ups and downs. I’ll bring you back Everytime I start to fall because you were there to remind it isn’t my time to fall. Alone In the dark you still light the way , your green eyes remind me of brighter days. No words describe my love for you , my baby brother , but the son I knew.
