Shimmering child I almost see
as through a veil or mist of tears
that certain magic of a young girls heart
all love and hope and something more
but like a vase of precious worth
the world will shatter and tear apart
this priceless thing without a thought
into bits and pieces and shards that cut
until rivulets of blood flow from your heart
and from your face a single tear
hangs suspended in mid-air and in the tear
your eyes reflect the pain and sufferings
of a thousand deaths
I stand and watch why can`t scream
to see the death of a young girls dream
but God with rivers of tears he cries
his pain so great that he must die
and this I know and feel for sure
that God created a heaven pure
built of truth and love and innocence
and flowers that bloom with ethreal scents
and all that`s good and right endures
and a young girls hearts
the something more.

Today I read again the poem my brother wrote for me a little over a year ago. Each time I read it, it always makes me cry.  No one has ever known my heart like my brother, and he proves that with his words. Thank-you for caring for me when nobody else cared. It was the love of my brother and the Lord above that sustained me during my childhood years. I love ya Forrest (Butch to me)......

A very nice poem. I was there I understand it fully and it captures the pain of my sister and her early childhood. Good job Forrest.
