Even Though We Are Miles Apart

January 26, 2010: My Brother's Birthday My poem to him, even though it's a little rough.

sunny -11 °C

My little brother is growing too fast,
With each passing the years get more exciting.
Remember to pause and let the moment last.
And yet, I can’t believe you’re really sixteen.

This year I won’t be singing the birthday tune, be certain,
Instead others beside you are there to help celebrate.
Three nights from now, under a starry curtain
Rock out with your date and mates.

You have been my best friend,
Confiding my secrets in you
Each time I think of the past
I wonder if you miss me too.

On steep slopes, racing at terrifying speeds,
To reach a bliss, there are little needs.
Soon you will be driving your own car,
But life doesn’t need one to go far.

On the night of your birthday,
I will still be thousands of miles away.
But keep me close to your heart,
And the distance won’t set us apart.
