Two weeks ago

Two weeks ago today my younger brother, 26, passed away unexpectedly. On Wednesday night,he layed out his clothes for the next day, watched the news with my mom, knowing him probably made a few jokes and went to sleep. The next day, my mom went to wake him him up and he was gone. I read the poem below at his funeral on Friday,and that's pretty much as deep as I can bear to go on this blog...I am working hard to move forward and to appreciate everyone everyday.

i carry your heart with me

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
