My Brother My Best Friend

You tell me you have this pain in your chest from being alone,

But your not alone, I’m here for you,

You’re so eager to give away your heart.

Is it because you feel you’re so deserted?

One wrong move and your heart shatters,

But those who love you are always there picking up the pieces,

And giving you support in everything that you need.

I come running to you with my every problem,

You are my rock, and my shoulder to cry on,

You look after me, when no one else can,

I come running to you whenever I get scared.

You’ve become my trustee and my confidant,

You are my brother, and my best friend.

You tell me you have this pain in your chest from being alone,

But you’re not alone; I’m here for you,

The pain is clear in your eyes, you look so weak, so not you,

I wish I didn’t see you cringe every time her name is mentioned.

This pain I can see is deep in your soul, I know you’re hurting,

I’m sorry she betrayed you, and I’m sorry you feel abandoned,

But you’re not alone! You have a sister that loves you,

And no matter what the reason you need me is,

I’ll always be here for you.

I come running to you with my every problem,

My Rock, my shoulder to cry on,

You look after me, when no one else can,

I come running to you whenever I get scared.

My trustee and my confidant,

You are my brother, my best friend.
