How Do I Say Goodbye to a Brother Like You?
How do I say goodbye to a brother
That I love as much as you?
It’s hard to believe that you’re really gone
I’m still hoping it isn’t true
Wishing this sorrow was just a dream
From which we’d wake up to find
You still here…In life…With us
That I could turn back this heartache in time
For I just can’t bear to do it
Say “Goodbye” to a brother like you
Few others have shared so much of my life
Or know me as well as you
I think upon the mem’ries we shared
When we were very young
You teased me, played with me, and laughed with me
When our lives had just begun
When we shared simple thoughts and simple dreams
And were lost in childhood’s plans
Dreaming up our next adventures
In the vivid ways only children can
And as we grew up, there were more special moments
That proved the depth of your love and care
As you helped me through my difficult times
When I needed you…You were always there
My life has been guided and truly blessed
In so many ways by your loving soul
And I’ll miss you more than I could ever say
Or that you could ever know
Still the feeble words need expression
Sharing my heartfelt gratitude
Declaring all that you meant to me
And my endless love for you
