Answer the text.

I can only send so many.

Hoping, praying, waiting

For a response, from the brother I love.

When was the last time you answered?

I can't remember it's been so long.

I can't wait much longer.

Crying myself to sleep,

because I love and miss you so much,

maybe too much.

I send texts all the time,

you haven't answered in months.

Waiting. Waiting. Waiting.

It's all I can do.

Going through pictures,

Standing in the hallway,

staring at your highschool plaque.

They're all I have left of you.

The only things left of my brother.

I send the texts, look at the pictures,

wait for a reposnse.

What can I do?

I cry, hope, and wait.

For you to answer the text
