At a glance, we're just two kids,
Standing by each other
Blue dress, dark sweater,
Posing for our mother
The T.V. stands behind us,
Taller than us both
His hair, longer than mine
By three inches at the most
We're staring at the camera,
Our blue eyes open wide
His arm around my shoulder
And head tilted to the side

At a glance, we're just two kids,
But there's more than you can see
He's my older brother,
Who watches over me
Even though he is a pain,
He's still my closest friend
If I get in any trouble,
He'll be there to defend
I love my older brother,
And all that we've been though
Even though he won't admit it,
I know he loves me too

The author's comments:
I was looking through old family photos and found one of my brother and I. He was my best friend growing up and we continue to hang out. I decided to write this poem to express our relationship.
