Craig, I'm in tears!! Such a beautifully written tribute to your brother! I am so sorry for your loss...I can't even imagine not having my brothers around. Although sad, I couldn't help but find myself smiling with some of the stories told in this piece. Such mischief and fun...gotta love boys, brothers especially lol. Amazing job once again...and much love and peace to you!
Completely agree. Craig, I had to take a break when I felt tears welling up, I've never lost a sibling but I have lost brothers. Time doesn't heal the wound, just makes it hurt less. Your writing is raw, and relatable.

I was so engrossed in the story I didn't even notice the rhymes were perfecty imperfect. I love the use of licence in this poem. I'm sorry for your loss.
Siblings what would we do without them. Its nice to have them
around to watch over us, fight with us and do naughty things together
rather then be a single child and not know what that love is all about.
A moving write which has good and bad days, fights and laughter
and the loss of someone who was very dear to you and without realizing
they just pop into your memory just like that for no reason...touching write,

Craig firstly I apologise for missing, it is a beautifully? rhymed piece with so much love and raw emotions within it which makes for a really good piece.
I am truly sorry for your loss and I know they say time heals but I completely disagree, I just feel that we get used to that person not being around but when we think about them it makes things real that they aren't here but memories of them are and they haunt us.
I love the reminiscing of the piece and the memories as it shows your brother lives on and how close you were to him and it made me smile/laugh because it reminded me of me and my siblings my goodness I can tell some stories but the funniest one is me and my brother were having a pillow fight and he ended up knocking my tooth out lol then we have the emotional part where sadly your brother passes and my heart stopped a little and I had to take a breather as I had a brother (older than me) who was really ill so I never got to meet him and though I have my sisters and brother I often wonder whether life would be different with him here and it sounds daft but it feels as though I'm grieving for someone I never met.
