Best Friend and Brother

You are the one who gave me strength and inspiration

You are the one who gave me fun and love

You gave me imagination and determination

You were warm, smart, protective, and fuzzy; all of the above

But now, Death has taken you from me

All my heart can do is cry badly

When I write poetry, I think of you

My writing always feels like new

Thank you for the seventeen years

My brother, my dog, my bugaboo
