Brother, stay with me

Our eyes were the same shade of misty blue
and though you didn't call to me I sensed it, I still knew,
You were my big brother without enough time
but in this life you slipped and left me behind.

Our story here, a sombre painting trapped in its frame
Perhaps when next I blink my eyes I will see, I will find:
Meadows, crystal oceans, mountains, you and I
Not of body but spirit in kind.

Us together, you and me
Traveling all these years
Our souls intertwined
Forever and free.
