We accept the love we think we deserve.

Big brother, you left us and I don’t know why
No one’s ever asked why but that’s what I’m here for
Why did you leave?
I know you saved my life, but you didn’t have to go
Why do bad things happen to innocent people?
Did you not want to see me grow up?

No one even knows your name, big brother
I know it’s not your fault, but why did you leave?
I thank you for giving me the chance to live but I wanted to meet you

I’ve seen you in my dreams, big brother
Your light brown hair, where did you get it?
Your brown eyes, where did you get them?
Your great smile, where did you get it?

Mom doesn’t think about it anymore, but I do

The brother that I never met but he gave me the chance to live. My mom could only have 3 kids and he was going to her third. She had a miscarriage. If he would've been born, I wouldn't have. I've seen him in my dreams. I know it's him that visits me in my dreams.
