Today was my brother's funeral, I told myself I wasn't going to cry. I was going to smile; because that's what my brother would have wanted. I was okay for awhile, tired to stay strong. However, I did cry a little here and there; until the very end when the funeral guy closed with a poem. It said that we wanted him back, to have him walk back into our life's. I started crying a little bit harder but not yet breaking down. I couldn't do that, I was going to walk out of there w...ith a smile on my face, a goodbye to my brother. To show him that I could still smile. But as I said goodbye to my family and left, I made it to the car and finally broke down because my heart hurts. Yesterday I didn't believe he could really be gone but today, I now know my brother is really, really gone and he isn't coming home; that's what hurts the most because I just want to see that goofy grin again but I know deep down I'll be alright. I will keep going on with a smile.
I will love my brother until the stars no longer shine, I will miss him when the sun goes to sleep and the moon comes alive. I will smile through my tears and laugh and eat like a pig. I don't need I'm sorry for your loss, I want your smiles. Smile for my brother, laugh and enjoy life. Be kind to others and remember to smile when you see somebody having a bad day. Be happy. This song goes out to my brother. I love you Marcos.
