About the Poem

This poem was inspired by my brother. Although he is very hard to get along with sometimes I love him very much and I hope that he realizes this. I can already tell even though he younger than I that he faces many challenges ahead of him besides the obvious . . . and I want to both let him free and guard him like a mother. But in a way . . . I can do both without strangling him too much. But to get to the point . . . I wanted to express the love that I feel towards my brother and let him know that he can always come to me for strength and help.

This poem made me cry. I sent it to my 20-year old son who doesnt want to know me since I left his verbally and mentally abusive father. He doesnt realise that he has now taken my place and my ex-husband is now treating him the same way he treated me.

I want you to know that I have been looking for some type of peom to enclose in my brothers birthday card. I wanted something to reflect the love I feel for him. We are two against the world since we lost our father in December of 2001. I found this poem to touch my heart and had many of the thoughts I wished to share with my brother. So thank you for this beautiful little piece it was just what I wanted to say without knowing how.

My Fragile Little Flame

Please don't drift away too far
My fragile, little flame
Your brighter than the others
but I see your true self
Your light is fading . . .
So how can I show you
that I will be your moon
That gives you light in the darkness
That guides you through
your blinding tears
Please my fragile, little flame
don't go out
For you give me light as well

I lost my little brother Nov. 2, 2000. I feel like my light went out with him so this poem touched me very deeply. Randal was 58 years old and he died of lung cancer. I have been his caregiver. I miss him unbearably.
