To my brother

To my brother whose birthday
I never quite remember
But who I still
Think of
As one of the best
People I know
To my brother
Who walked me
To the bus stop
Taught me
How to ride a bike
Little treats
When I least expected
Six years older
But always so much
Wiser
Surrogate parent
So young but
So responsible
To my brother
Whose birthday I
Never quite remember
So many thank you’s
Never quite said
To my brother
I love you
