The Day My Brother Left
I will never forget that rainy day,
The day God decided to take you away.
I had just seen you that morning,
And I remember you being annoying.
I brought Cameron up for awhile,
He always had a way to make you smile.
He took a few steps your way,
And it really brightened up your day.
You left to go ride with your friend,
Only to never come back home again.
A neighbor seen it all and came to get Mom,
She told Mom "it's really bad"
and they hurried on.
I drove Dad's truck down there,
At first, I couldn't see you anywhere.
The next thing I saw was you on the ground,
You weren't moving, not making a sound.
When I got to the hospital
I thought you were going to be okay,
I never knew that the last time
I would see you alive
had been earlier that day.
I got up the strength and courage
to go back to that room,
But what I saw on the bed was cold,
still, lifeless ... not you!
I was in a daze, in a dream,
Nothing was real to me it seemed.
When I finally got back home,
It was so empty and alone.
It's been a year since you've left,
And I still can't say the word "death".
