A Lost Brother
Author: Leah

vinebar

As I look at a picture of my brother
I really start to wonder
Wonder why he makes me cry
I feel like Ive lost a brother
And this brother really hurt our mother
I know we all make mistakes
But somehow he is just not the same
I think our family is secretly in pain
I don't know if my brother knows he forgotten us
Or if hes lost his little sister's trust
I'll always love him
His picture is right in front of me
But its like I don't know him
Tears fall from my eyes
As my heart painfully cries
These tears are for the memories I don't have
And this painful love I don't understand
I miss him everyday
Even when hes visiting us
I'll pray that he'll realize that he has drifted away
And maybe just maybe this brother will come back some day
I use to love talking to my brother
But one day it all changed
It seemed like he no longer cared for what I had to say
Brother since weve been apart
There is something about thats changed
And that thing is your heart
I hope that you'll find it and never let it go
Until than I'll still love you and stare at this picture I don't understand
I wanted to say good bye
But instead I ran to the bathroom and cried!
While you pretended you didn't know why
But maybe you didn't and thats what scares me the most
You might not know that you hurting us so much
But than maybe you do and its hurting you too
Could you be hurting as well?
All this confusion hurts like hell
I guess only time will tell
I don't know what you know
But I know that your lost
And dear brother I hope that God finds you no matter the cost
I'll always love you forever and ever
Dear brother you are our families lost treasure

everything i feel...

this poem is the only poem i have ever found that really says everything about my brother and my family situation... i havent seen or talked to my brother in a really long time. and i miss him dearly. and it was all caused because of my parents divorce. well anyways... thank you for touching my heart.

the silence in my home

i have always thought that my family was a strong and loving one, but within these two weeks i've discovered the truth that the pain in the hearts of the people i love only grows into a never ending silence that hurts me deep down inside
