The Significance of One

It was 33 years ago today
that my brother took his life.
A day that changed me forever.
His death did not make headlines
in People or Time.
It did, however, headline my life book.
I look back all the time and remember
And his wonderful ways.
And his happy face.
His exuberance.
His hard work.
And his Love for his Family.
And me.
I dream of him. Still, he looks the same.
It's been such a long time.
Yet it seems like only yesterday.
I try to take a lesson,
a message,
All I get is Sadness.
I miss you, Jim.

With love and hugs.
