Today is My Brothers Birthday
My mom and dad had two children. Me, and my older brother. He was one grade a head of me in school. We use to live across the hall from each other. I saw him every day. The last time I saw him was six years ago.
He has always been my bestest brother, and I have been his bestest sister. For my birthday in 1973, he gave me a full length mirror. Glued to the bottom of the mirror were two silver medallions. To my bestest sister Pam. Love Neal 1973. When I left home at nineteen, I took the medallions and left the mirror.
I love my brother
Blowing out candles in my mind
