Brothers

Of birth and blood
we two are one
until our lives
are said and done

Our fathers sons
are we alone
through thick and thin
and worlds unknown

And in our hearts
we share a bond
a simple love
that goes beyond

Mere word or thought
we can express
a feeling that
we both possess

A friendship like
a silver chain
that binds until
we meet again

So when we part
let us not weep
but strengthen more
the ties we keep

Of birth and blood
we two are one
until our lives
are said and done…
