From these pages you have only glimpsed a portion of a life filled with wit and intellect, a soul whose purpose was to love his family and bring a life of joy to others. He is the consummate brother and friend and so much more.
My Brother's Fire
My time has come that I must break these earthly bonds
and shed the fickle chains that tie my earthly soul.
That I have lived a life, a life of dreams
a life that holds a fervent fire,
And quenched my thirst of love and grander things I have not known.
That I have climbed the mount and flexed my wings
and soared to heights unbridled,
and touched the sky with thoughts and prayers my mind may only raise.
In starlight’s glow I bask above the earthly blue
and breathe the breath of angels
as God’s own hand does call me home.
Those hands I touch that comfort me
that soothes my soul I touch no more,
yet revel in the memory of a touch long lost.
I fill the void my heart has longed to keep
and hold dear the face of my child
and I shall sleep now in peace as I await my valentine.
We were five and now we are four, yet one day through the grace of God we shall be five once more.
In loving memory...Donald (North of 50)
