God does things in a way
that you don't see the plan right away
that you wonder why and how
people were brought into your life
God sent you to me
you are the brother
I always wanted
the one who holds my hand
pats my back and tells me
My man's an ***
with no ulterior motive
and no strings attached
the one who calls me on my ****
and allows me to be deadass wrong
without judging or saying
you just **** your head and
look with one eyebrow
out the side - I already know
the one who makes me laugh
even when I want to cry
the one who has held me down
when I couldn't provide
your praise is accepted and
your promises come through
and, no matter what
I can always count on you
the one who invited me into his home
introduced me to his wife
his daughter calls me godmother
and she scatters notes throughout my house
to read while smiling long after she leaves
she is one of my greatest joys
thank you for sharing her with me
and when I cry, I don't stop the tears
im never embarrassed in your sight
we have shared important milestones
which have marked us family for life
so, during your soon to come worst days
please remember to fight
when you want to give up,
please call me, let me know what you need
let me take care of you like no one took care of me
cuz better than anyone else, I know how hard this can be
I know you should peel all fruit because the skin of an apple
during chemotherapy tastes rancid and fails to digest
and hurts like hell coming up.
Let me be the one to flavor your water cuz
everything you are gonna eat is gonna taste
like a sock full of nickels
Let me remind you to use baby shampoo
and when your scalp starts tingling buy you Sorbeline lotion
let me hard boil you eggs cuz meat tastes gross
yet protein you need to keep you here with us
let me keep a journal for you
to tell all those you love when your in that mood
Let me do something, because I feel like
there is nothing I can do to make life better for you
and you are getting better.
Brother, please its not just me
we all need you. From the boys
to your wife, all four girls, your grandson,
**** even those who you can't never count on
is counting on you to get better,
so please just give me that look
the one where you roll one
eyeball back and smile so big
that the rest of the world feels at ease.
there are so many tears being shed
by members of this tribe we call family
from separate homes spread everywhere
because there have been a million times
you have saved our fate
You are a true brother
Now, please warrior, save you.
