The Protectors

You lived so close to the edge of death 

And he died so close to the edge of life

One thought

One breath

Separated you from your brother

And you cannot forget that.

And that is why it hurts

That is why the loss is haunting

And why it hunts you down each day.

When you are not looking and even when you are

You will work hard to forget

And to remind yourself

Of what is at stake.
