KEEP YOUR GAZE STEADY
AS YOU WATCH OVER US NOW
TIME RAN OUT TOO QUICK FOR ME,
BUT I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE AT PEACE
HAVING YOU AS A BROTHER, WAS AN ADVENTURE TO SAY THE LEAST
JUMPING OUT OF TWO STORY WINDOWS, ACTING LIKE POWER RANGERS AND PLAYING TEKEN
MAKING IT RAIN WITH DOLLAR BILLS, ARGUING OVER THE SMALLEST THINGS
RACING CARS WHILE WE WRE ON BICYCLES, DELAYING CHORES UNTIL MOMS CAR WAS IN SIGHT
BREAKING ALL KINDS OF THINGS AND BEING LABELED AS “TEARER UPPERS”
ALL KINDS OF MEMORIES; CHERISH THEM, I WILL, BUT ITS CRAZY THA I WILL NEVER HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE MORE, 
KNOWING HOW YOU LEFT ME HURTS TREMENDOUSLY, MOST OF THE TIME I TRY NOT TO THINK ABOUT IT.
ON YOUR MOVE TO THE AFTER LIFE, AND MAYBE YOU WERE READY.  NOW YOU MAY WATCH OVER US, AND KEEP YOUR GAZE STEADY.
WITH ALL MY LOVE,
 TAY-TAY
