JSG, USAF, ret

He had my heart from the first time

That first day, He had my heart

Just a child myself, but I was his big sister.

Didn’t know what that meant, only that he had my heart.

Years went by , goals were made and kept or tossed by the wayside,

And through them all, he had my heart.

My road kept me here, the little brown wren singing her song alone

While his road took him far and wide to places I could only dream of

But with him he carried my heart.

Yesterday my heart stopped briefly when his heart ceased to beat.

He flies with angels now, and still he has my heart.

    1. Thank you Colleen. I am slowly realizing he is totally pain free for the first time in years and I know he is in the best place possible for this Christmas. Selfishly I want him back, but only a pain free version of him. I love him so much!

    1. Thank you so much. It seems such a small thing when the pain is so raw, but I had to get it out. The harsh reality is setting in — I will never see his wonderful face again, or hear his laughter, no more long telephone conversations, It’s all over now.


  1. Angie, I am sure he is looking down and trying to comfort you in your pain. Jesus lets things happen for the better though it is hard for us to realize in our time of sorrow.

    1. I know he is in a much better place but am selfishly wanting him back one more minute so I could say goodbye. He knows my heart and mind but it still hurts. Time will help heal all things, I know this but the heart is ruling the brain at this time.


    2. Thank you Margaret. Steve was special to us all. He had been sick for so many years and in so much pain I am now at the point of being happy for him. He is at peace and completely out of pain now and for that I am very thankful. But he will always have my heart!


  2. Angie, again I am sorry for the loss of your brother. This is a touching tribute to him and your love for him. Best wishes on remembering the memories and moments of his life moreso than its passing. Keith

    1. Thank you Keith. He was very special to us all, but I think more to me because he was my little brother. Two more brothers and two sisters followed him, but he was special. And I am remembering Christmas past and will be for a few days. The halcyon days on Highway 81
