My brother was “special”
-we always knew,
He was loving and giving
Kind hearted and true.
He taught me patience,
the simplicity of life,
the peace of a moment,
a freedom from strife.
He lived with a wisdom
with a deep insight,
an understanding, a knowledge,
that for him was “right”
My Brother Brian was “special”.
