Today, last year.

Published on 8 April 2023 at 18:26

Today last year I was broken,

Today last year I was torn,

Today last year I couldn’t feel anymore,

I didn’t know how I would,  without you in this life go on.

 

Today last year I learned you were gone,

Today last year I was told dear brother, that to this world you did not belong, 

Today last year I screamed, I wept, I cried, I begged,

I heard words I wasn’t prepared for,

Words to which I didn’t and don’t want to hold on.

 

Today last year I was scared,

Today last year I was afraid,

Today last year I experienced your loss, which brought such emptiness, such pain.

I felt anguish I never new existed, that I just wanted to close my eyes and lay down beside you,

Maybe God would me too embrace?

 

Today, this year, I still feel broken,

Today, this year, I still feel torn,

Today the pain might be different,

But it hurts, the loss is so strong.

 

Today, I look around, I miss you,

Today, so many things have happened since bro, life has moved on,

Today, I am still crying, still hurting, still pleading,

Why did it have to happen? There was so much more for us, the pain is so raw.

 

On this day Today, I honor you.

On this day Today, I pray.

On this day Today, I am filled with so much of your love,

I feel you, I celebrate you, my dear brother, this is your day.
