Title: Brothers -poem
Post by: jt72 on July 05, 2021, 09:44:35 AM
Brothers

 God gave me three
 brothers
 (Jimmy, Johnny, and
 James ) to love, grow
 up with and call my
 own.

 Three brothers (two
 older and one younger)
 than me...
 Special parts of my
 childhood - special
 part of my every day.

 They did not stray far
 from the old home place,
 My life took me further
 away.

 Years passed but one
 thing never changed
 (at least not for me)
 together or a part I
 never stopped loving
 my brothers...
 with all my heart.

 My oldest brother was
 called home years ago
 I didn't get to tell
 him good bye, and at
 the time it hurt me so.

 But in the years since
 I come to realize- my
 brother's not gone
 He's a beautiful angel
 always by my side.

 Now as life would have
 it be- unless God
 intervenes- my other two
 brothers will soon leave.

 We all fail to spend time
 with loved ones, when
 they are alive...

 My brothers don't need me
 there to watch them die
 -when in my heart
 they will always be alive.

 Three beautiful angels
 always by my side.

 If it be God's will, and
 they are ready to go,
 I will morn their leaving
 in my own way.

Another Angel Brother
October 6, 1952 - July 7, 2021

Your dreams in worldly things
 brought you unrest, and
 at times a troubled mind.

 My little brother...
 God called you home
 today to live in peace
 and sing once more
 praises to God- with heart
 felt songs.

 Fly, sweet angel brother, you earned
 your angel wings...
 You completed your journey

...to eternity.

when you awake
  at heaven's gates
 you will be .reunited, once more
 with family and friends happily waiting
 to welcome you in.

rest sweet brother
 in the arms of your angel
 mother...

You are home now brother
 another angel who will
  always  walk by your
  loved ones side.

 This world has a way of
 pulling loved ones a part
 but in the end, if it be God's
 will- we'll all be together
 again.

 I love you...Rest in Peace

One day at a time
we draw nearer to
our own destiny... jt

Lord today is my oldest
brother's Birthday
and the day the angel's
took my last brother
away.

Give me the strength
to bear my earthly loss
and please, forgive me
for crying today....
while three angel brothers
sing together, holding on
to family and old friends
cradled, one, by one,
in the arms, of their
angel father and mother.

The eyes of the angels
watch from afar...our
times of joy and pain
smiling down, sending
love unending, until
we all meet in heaven
again.

My brothers are at peace
Angels all three- who
will never die...
Angels who walk with loved
one-who will always be by
their side.

I love you Jimmy,Johnny,
and James...

Happy Birthday Jimmy...

The greatest gift of all
is love.
