As you go on with life, never regret anything. Everything I've ever done has lead me to having for beautiful children. If I had never gotten on my motor cycle that day I would have never met your mother and you wouldn't be here-dad

He's not in the grave,
He's standing right here.
Waiting and watching every move,
I ever make.
Judging each decision,
Judging each moment.
Watching my mother,
Sad that she's cried.
Watching over his second oldest sister,
Who doesn't remember a thing.
Following his father,
Who fights every day.
Looking at the little boys,
He thinks replaced him.
Making sure they're healthy,
And happy.
Staying up with them,
Silently laughing,
At the stupid inside jokes.
Holding his oldest sisters hand.
'Cause she's the only sibling,
Who remembers.
He whispers in her ear,
The only thing she's ever wanted to hear:
"I like him"
He's NOT in the grave.

this piece is about my dead baby brother who died when I was four. I remember everything and always look for him to approve of what i do.
