Arms of a Brother

Big brothers give the best hugs

Comforting arms of stability 

That bring feelings of tranquility 

To be able to rest in calmness 

To be able to find solace 

Warm oranges and bright yellow

Feelings that make me feel mellow 

How I long to be calm

Like a little girl lost, looking for mom 

I get such a shrinking feeling 

Like a roof with no ceiling 

I just want to be in the arms of a brother 

Because that kind of comfort can come from no other 

I just miss my brother

    A special relationship to be sure. I am a big brother so I don't know it from your perspective but love your description.

    Emotional, gripping, but... oh so true. My brother had saved my life more times than I can count, and I took him for granted. You shared an heart rattling write today, thank you. I loved it.

    Been a big brother for 68 years and my 'little' sister still expects me to call her every week. And I do!
    Hugs are more difficult, she lives in Europe.
    Great poem with a great message!
