For My Brother

when you were little
I told you we could fly:
I wasn’t so much
making jest,
as watching
you fly
while I stood earthboundand
marvelled your loops
and dives.

Tonight while I
fix my wings with wax;
and you fix yours with some
amazing heat resistant
lightweight polymer
know this:

I believe in you beyond
a thousand suns lifetimes
burning into fiery eternity;

And beyond the river
that flows the same path
for time upon time,
eventually cuts a
deeper, more satisfying and
permanent way through.

Remember, my darling,
you are the big picture
painted in the colours of
the sky and the land.

You will succeed.
You will find love.
You will be the light that
everyone looks for
and to.

I know this, because
you are part
of me.

For My Brother
