Condolence From: Rest in peace, my forever brother
Condolence: Why do we meet in this place
This place of sadness and sorrow
Our dear friend lay quietly, serene
I will miss him with every tomorrow

He introduced us, do you remember
When we were all just kids
He had known you forever
Shared that picture from the crib

My heart was stolen then
He understood I had been smitten
He listened through thick and thin
No greater friend could be written

He comforted me when I cried
Never laughed at my childish side

He knew better than all
Your meaning in my life
But now he’s gone forever
No more sorrow, no more strife

He took the secret with him
The one who introduced me to you

Heart breaking
Soul aching
My forever brother is taken
The loss of great love . . . times two.
