thank you for living

dear  brother.

thank u for living

one of my first and lifelong

heroes u remain

i marvelled at

your quick wit and humor

u could turn away

the bullies with humor

their tales tucked

walking away

frustrated that

they

could not

break your spirit

they were unable

unable to take u to the ground

u did not succumb

to their meanness

ever

so now as cancer  tries to take over your cells

yes it is disheartening

but

what a valiant

well  played life

you have lived

strong

even in surrender
