Do you recall the time I borrowed your new bike and scratched it all up?
I figured you would pound me, but you did not.
Do you recall the time you caught me skipping school to go to the baseball game?
I thought for sure you would tell Mom and Dad, but you did not.
Do you recall the time I broke the window at the community center and you had to pay for it?
I figured you would take my allowance to cover the cost, but you did not.
Do you recall the time we went camping and I forgot my tent?
I thought you would make me sleep in the dirt all night, but you did not.
Do you recall the time I started a fight with those big guys and you had to come and save my butt?
I figured you would leave me there to get what was coming to me, but you did not.
Yeah, there were a bunch of things you did not do.
But you were always there to look out for me, to guide me, and to love me.
Now there were tons of things I planned to do to make it all up to you when you returned from deployment in the Middle East.
But you did not.
MORAL OF THE POEM: We must show love for our worldly brothers and sisters while they’re still here to be loved. Because tomorrow they may not be. So let’s all do it now.
