~Three Brothers~

I have
three brothers

All younger
than me

They are all
very special
in my heart

The eldest
after me
is a teddy bear,
so smart
and kind,
with a heart
as big
as life itself

The next
has strength
surpassed
by few,
some say
stubborn…
but, I say
focused

The baby…
a sweetheart,
always wants
to please
Wants me happy,
wants everyone
happy
Except himself…
happiness eludes him

My life would be so
very different
without my brothers
They are my rocks,
they stand beside me
and hold me up

Always there
no matter what
I could ask for the moon
and the stars
and they would
give them
to me

They are all
special to me,
in their own ways

I love them so

I am blessed
