He Was Only Three MAG

My brother was already three
Yet he still could not say “potty”
I would call and squeal his dear name
But received not a glance from he

My brother was already three
When aware doctors came to see
He was a boy with autism
Thus his world did not include me

My brother was already three
When I took him to go sightsee
But the busy crowds of Shanghai
Carelessly separated we

My brother was already three
And as appealing as Jet Li
When I let go of his small hand
Came parting of eternity

I spotted his teddy bear cap
Fluttering above the street floor
When I covered our distant gap
Sadly he was on earth no more

My dear brother was only three …
When he drowned in that traffic sea

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

No wrods..... Left me too sad...but great work...love the poetry...
