#100 Never Ending Rain
Last summer my brother moved out of state, hours away from me. I had a hard time dealing with him not being around because we were very close. I still miss him very much but I know we will always be close.

|You had to go and that is understood.
Things just weren’t right here for you.
The feeling you have given me
Has left me alone, standing alone.
I’m almost certain that you can see.
During your absence it has given me time
To think of ways I can escape this.
To run away from the pain.
Nothing ever seems to work
It’s almost like a never ending rain.
With you there and me here standing alone
I worry for the day to come
The day when we are further apart
You won’t be there in the coming year,
To help me through things, but you’ll be in my heart.
There is also a fear of being detached,
Of being separate for so long.
We have progressed through the years.
The times we have shared merely brightened my day
And now all I can do is shed the tears.
The hurt that I am feeling right now,
I know that you can feel it inside.
But I want you to remember that once it’s through,
You’ll always be my big brother,
Someone whom I will forever look up to.
