Topic: Brothers of Another Mother

Brothers of Another Mother

Your friendship so deep
A friendships so true
Oh my god,
How did this happen
To you?

Hot tiers run down my numb face
With a time and a distance
out of place

Forever will I remember
Hair Red like a torch,
Sitting with my guitar
On a rail of the cabin porch.
.
You who saw someone on the outside.
In a cast of many, together we did ride.
Together we laughed and together we have cried.

Your friendship so deep
A friendships so true
Oh my god,
How did this happen
To you?

As brothers by blood have disagreed.
So did we.
Some mistaken conversation and we lost touch.

As luck would have it.
And fate decreed
Once again we found each other
As it was meant to be.

My brother, though not by birth,
A bond so tight
There is no measure of worth
Oh brother
Why did you take your life and leave this earth?

Your friendship so deep.
Our friendships so true.
Oh my god,
How did this happen
To you?

That's very good Scott, as well as very tragically sad.

Re: Brothers of Another Mother

Beamer I can feel that pain of the question why would a person take their own life and leave all those unanswered questions behind. Sadly in my extended family a few have gone down that road. Beautifully written I can feel that bond with a person who is not a blood relation but still very much  family.

Re: Brothers of Another Mother

This is written so nicely and some beautifully written and sad and a warning to each of us to help our friends who might have a problem at the same time.  Reminds me of REM
"When your day is long And the night, the night is yours alone When you're sure you've had enough Of this life, well hang on."     

Music is what feelings sound like.
Music is life, that why our hearts have beats.

Funny you should mention REM as Wes really loved them and was the one who turned me on to them.  the song was SUPERMAN.

Song was Everybody Hurts, not Superman - although both songs are fantastic.

I am sorry for the loss you experienced and the pain that lingers.

Re: Brothers of Another Mother

Not just a statement of fact but a need to know question. Sorry for your loss but as always tragedy gives inspiration and breeds excellent poetic works like this.
