being diffrent is one of the best things i have ever done with my life


Dear Brother,
I love you, not just because you’re my brother
But because you’re a great person too,
You’re nice
You’re caring
You do what I ask with a smile,
Though I never return the favor
And for that I’m sorry
You don’t know how much you mean to me

Dear Brother,
I love you, not just because you’re my brother
But because you’re a great person too,
I hear others say
“My brother hates me, my brother hits me,
My brother is mean, I hate my brother”
I would never say that
Because it’s not true
You’re nothing but nice to me
And every one around you
Even if they don’t deserve your caring heart
They get it any way
Because you say every one deserves a chance

Dear Brother,
I love you, not just because you’re my brother
But because you’re a great person too,
I love you because,
From you I learn
Life lessons that needed to be taught
I’m jealous of you
For things you do that I can’t
I’m proud of you and proud to call you my brother
For everything you have done,
For everything you do,
For everything you are,
For everything you will be,

Dear Brother,
I love you

The author's comments:
I wrote this for my brother, he graduated, class of 2010. I knew I wanted to give him a poem for a present, but everything I read just didn't seem like us. So I started to write this and gave it to him thinking that he would think it was stupid, but instead of laughing he started to cry. I have never felt closer to my brother in my entire life. He means a lot to me.

Really liked this poem, I have a brother who's a lot like this.  Also loved how it justs ends with "Dear Brother, I love you".  Great poem!
