My Brother

My brother has passed away
Leaving a hole
A void so deep that stays.

No laugh, no hearing his chuckle
No ‘Huh?’ accompanying
His incredulous, questioning smile.

No feeding the brown or the black cat
All memories now
No more, no more of that.

Now my brother, sleep quiet, sleep sweet
Rest now my brother for evermore
In heavenly peace.
