To My Brothers

I remember everything from the sway of the swings
To the bugs that infested the space underneath the slide.
I re-visit these days when my today’s aren’t fulfilling enough,
to satisfy this ever so impatient mind of mine.
Oh, how simple it was, how innocent we all once were…
Unaware of all the things life would cause to occur.
The oldest I may be,
but at times it seemed you both ended up being the ones having to save me.
The world will get colder and the times more trying
I’d do my best to wear a cape
and protect you for the rest of your days.
But my best advice is to stand tall and not to weep,
for you can stare at these photos
and travel back in time with me.
