Brother – Poem

Brother – Poem JKLeahy ©

In her blood – I she bore

The umbilical cord, your core

A chance life, you survived

I called you brother


Independence gained you

And took you a long mile

Long enough to hide your smile

The umbilical cord severed


The distance held you prisoner

But kept you alive in memory

When I called out – “brother!”

Wind chimed in wide yonder


You found family in strangers

Where freedom was faltered

Death sought your surrender

Our hearts mangled forever


( On your 40th Rivona)
