Brothers, best friends, together always.

Fishing, and baseball, – oh those were the days.

The fighting and arguing and all in between

The laughing and joking till tears filled our eyes.

I remember those times each day I wake

Not understanding God’s choice in who to take

A brother, a father a good man to all.

I remember our last time together

Sitting and talking well into the night

Together, your sickness we vowed to fight.

I remember you asking, ‘ Jer are you sure’

Looking at you, our eyes filled with tears

‘ Jack you’re my brother, – my blood is yours ‘.

I remember them saying the transplant went well

Kissing you goodbye I went on my way

I am fine you said, no need to stay.
