Memory to my Brother

Born of my Mother
Michael, My little Brother.

Always together, harldly ever apart,
I will never let you leave my heart.

I miss your smile, your music, and your art,
At that time, your life was beginning to start.

I think of you the most on January twenty fifth,
My memories of us growing up, never to be, a myth.

Many years have past and have gone by,
If you were still here 43,oh my.

Then God had taken you at an early age,
He knows whats best,  released you from the cage.

Knowing today your in a better place,
Don't worry little brother, I remember your face.

Rest peacefully, dear brother, don't worry about me,
I know your flying with the angels, and you are free.


Happy Birthday
Miss you,Bernie

Micheal Slicker Jan 25, 1958 - April 1977

Kethry,
thank you, when the memories are there, one never leaves.

1slick_lady,

Poet deVine
ty,for having you reply made me smile too.

dsnyder,
ty, and i do believe that his smile is big enough for all of us.

Mother Earth,
Thanks for the hug,,, i needed one, and when that day arrivies, i am sure it will be a joyous one.

Elizabeth,
ty,
Yes, the loss of a loved one is sad,
But hold on the the memories you once had.
That that means one never has to die,
But in someones heart be forever LIVE.

Paula Finn,
Special ty to your reply, u picked out that we were more than brothers, but friends also. We were very close to each other, shared the same room, bunkbeds, and shared everything we had and did....    Yes we were more than brothers, we were also friends.
Glad i could share.


Once again to all of you,

Thank You
Bernie
