About the Poem
This poem means a lot to me. My brother died when I was very young so I didn't have a chance to know him, and it may sound silly but I feel writing this poem brings me closer to him in some way because I feel in my heart that he can actually hear what I say can maybe see what I write.

|Do you look down at me in the night
Do you see my candle burning so big and so bright
The candle I burn that reminds me of you
The candle I hope that you would burn too.
Not a day goes by where I don't think of you
hoping that you'd come back so the days won't be blue.
I feel no one understands me, apart from you.
I go to your grave expecting a response
to the pointless questions I can't get across.
Though sometimes In my mind I forget that you're dead
but I'll make sure you keep living in my head
I love you so much it makes me so sad
that I can't hear you say it back - the one thing that would make me glad.
You probably think I'm silly when we didn't even know each other
But to me you'll always be my brother.
