One year ago today my little brother was hit and killed by a car. It has been a very hard year for all of my family, we are just not the same dynamic. I've never known such heartache, I can't imagine ever losing a child and the pain my mother must be feeling. I pray for all those who have suffered the loss of a child. As for my mother, she is not doing to well. We are going to her house in about a half hour. All I can do is be by her side today, hold her hand and pray for strength and unrelenting faith.
My brother was such a great kid. He was so smart and touched many people with his words. He had depth way beyond his years. I miss him dearly. I can't wait for the day I see him again.
I leave you with a poem he wrote....
I sat one night upon a tree,
Just to see what I could see.
And what I saw was oh so great,
visions of stars and a moon so bright!
I saw in the moon a silver beauty,
shimmering hair and eyes straight white.
The Silver Moon Goddess, yes truly...
She gazed down upon me
and thus I fell from the tree.
A shimmering shroud of bright white light,
broke my fall then vanished from sight.
I gazed up at the moon again
and she was gone, as if she'd never been.
