I Have A Brother


I have a brother,
actually,  not so long ago
I had 3:
they were good enough brothers;
I'm not complaining
I'm just explaining,
that not that long ago
it was me and 3 other brothers,
as usual time comes and goes
and one by one 2 brothers died
right before their loved ones eyes,
one was my baby brother,
and another brother was
the one closest in age to me;
A subject to be emotionally addressed
when a life becomes a death;
I have a brother,
at one time it was three
then 2 passed away one by one
now it's just one brother and me.

Living and dying. We, the living, know we will die, but the dead? They know nothing at all.

Ecclesiastes 9:5 KJV.

We miss those we've lost. We should also be missed by at least one person. Hopefully we've lived right enough to have just one.

...just bein' Bluesy
