My Big Brother Off to The Army
Author: Terri Brewer
You've always been here for me,
But now you are about to leave.
I know we fuss and fight,
But I love you with all my might.
You are my big brother,
And there is no other.
No one can take your place,
And when you leave, there will be this big empty space.
We've never been really close,
But at least you have not always lived across the coast.
Because some big brothers do,
I'm really grateful for the 15 years I've lived with you.
I remember when I was small,
And I would always fall.
You were always there for me,
And I know you always will be.
You told me not to cry,
That it would be ok.
Even if I thought you lied,
It was like my big brother saved the day.
You've made me laugh, you've made me cry,
You've even helped me hide some lies.
I love you is something I don't tell you enough,
But I want you to know
When you leave it will be really tough.
I don't know how my life will be,
Without you here beside me.
You've lived with me for 15 years,
But now we're shedding our good-bye tears.
I know you have to move out,
And start a life of your own.
But promise me without a doubt,
You will never forget us back home.

Laid my head upon your chest
Your arms encircled me,
It was, My Love, as if we were
What God meant us to be,
I closed my eyes and heard your heart
Your soft smile in my hair,
I'd never felt so whole and safe
Our hearts beating as a pair,
You found my eyes and told me of
A love for me undying,
I kissed your face and knew right then
It was in Heaven we were lying.
