Daniel, My Brother

I love you more than you’ll ever know,

And it hurts me when you’re feeling low.

You’re the best friend that I’ve ever had,

And I never want to see you sad.

More than a friend, you are my brother,

I’ll fix your mood with a smother.

I’ll give you a hug and kiss on the cheek,

And lend you my strength when you feel weak.

I hope we stay together all through the years,

To help each other past all of our fears.

Daniel, my brother, I love you,

With all my heart, this is true.

Brothers

Hanging out with my brother

Is great fun like no other.

Not just one, I have two,

triple the fun for me and you.

Sports, cards, or a video game.

Fun will be had, all the same.

We may fight but we unite,

our brother bond is that tight.

If you try to mess with me,

you must always mess with three.

I do love my mom and dad,

and having sisters makes me glad.

But this I have to say,

whether we fight or if we play,

if we’re home or at the school,

acting normal or like a fool,

if trouble comes and times seem black,

a brother will always have your back!

In the end, there is no other,

like the love of a brother.

The Sound of Silence

Silence makes an eerie sound,

When you’re alone, no one around.

Your house is normally full of noise,

Barking dogs and rowdy boys.

But this night, it’s just you,

Sitting in silence, nothing to do.

You could watch the tv,

Or listen to music on MP3.

But for now you just sit,

And rest your tired brain a bit.

Far too soon they will be here,

Charging in with whoops and cheers.

So, you enjoy the silence while you can,

Who knows when it’ll come again.

The silence disappears as your brothers arrive,

The house, again, a buzzing hive.
