An Ache in My Heart

There's an ache in my heart now
where thoughts of you have been...
Your ways, your laugh, your love
Come to my mind so often

I didn't want you to go,
You know.
But a higher wisdom than mine
Had say so.

When I introduce myself, and say,
"I have four brothers..."
It pains.
Tears fill my eyes,
It rains.

I know I'm not alone
In these aches and pains.
I pray for all...
He sustains.

A poem I wrote in memory of my oldest brother, Nelson Thompson, who passed in November, 2001. This was originally posted on January 16, 2002.
