Another year passes,
With you not here.
Another day goes by,
wishing you were near.
Today's the day we remember your name,
and never look back, thinking,’ shame'.
But, instead, happiness, hope, joy, even sorrow,
and for some even still tomorrow.
But, as we look to the future,
we know this will happen again.
We'll remember always,
the day you were born and after then.

The author's comments:
I wrote this last year, after finding out that I had an older brother that died way before I was even thought about. I wish I could've met him, but I know that one day i will.
