My dear brother, Cesar, passed away yesterday. He was 77. Here’s to celebrate his truly wonderful, meaningful life.
I didn’t get to say “I love you”
Didn’t have time to say goodbye
I didn’t get to say “I’m sorry”
Tho at times I know I tried.
My immaculate big brother
You taught me much of life
You showed me the way to tomorrow
But my eyes were simply blind.
The path you took was long and narrow
Twas as rocky as can be
You went back home, your flag forlorn
But you kept your dignity.
So many lessons I have learned
So grateful for these gifts
A life of plenty, with love abundant
What a wonderful legacy.
I thought I would not miss you
I thought I would not cry
Funny how these thoughts of you
Just simply will not die.
Goodbye, dear brother. You are free now. Soar high up above and watch over us. And may your spirit be our source of strength, our guide and inspiration.
