Day 89/365: Brother’s Song

March 30, 2011

I’m wishing to sing a song for you and I cant find the right lyrics and melodies. But here’s something I knew that will match the grief and sadness;

Brother’s Song by Heather Davis

I was on the porch
she was in the den
i heard my mama’s voice asking someone when
and i knew she was talking about you
’cause she cried and she kept on asking why

You were the one
mama’s first son
daddy’s little man
my big brother who i love who i love

you were in my room
sitting on the floor
playing with these plastic soldiers marching off to war
and did you know
that someday you’d really go
you went to fight ’cause you always did what’s right

You were the one
mama’s first son
daddy’s little man
my big brother who i love who i love

From corner to corner they folded the flag
and i heard a bugle cry
holding onto a plastic soldier i said goodbye

and you were the one
mama’s first son
daddy’s little man
my big brother who i love

and you were the one
mama’s first son
daddy’s little man
my big brother who i love who i loved
