Spent much of my life missing you, this much is pretty true.
I just wanted my brother back, I just wanted you.
You hugged just like I do, your smile was the same.
You loved the way I made you laugh, even though you called it “lame.”
I have one of your last notebooks and other things of yours I’ve read.
It truly breaks my heart you never got out of your head.
You and I were the same in other ways too and I still haven’t read your texts.
But I know you reminded me of my goodness, and brought out my best.
We talked so many times about our needing.
Activities, the gym and lots of reading.
Wanting a positive mindset, we shared so much with each other.
From memes to books to conversations, with the one who understood me most, my brother.
When I read that you liked writing, too, it made me think, of course you do.
We miss you Andrew, me and Dad. He text today to say, “I’m sad.”
I just love you so very much, I absolutely do.
I couldn’t be more thankful, to be so much like you.
Happy birthday, Brother.
