For You, My Brother, On Father's Day This Father's Day I would love for you to know something... I think you're a pretty wonderful guy, and a great father, too. And I know I don't tell you often enough how much you mean to me, and how much you always have... but you're someone I dearly love. I think of you a lot, and one thought that has crossed my mind so many times is that... of the millions of brothers in the world... I somehow managed to be blessed with the best one of all. - Poem by Laurel Atherton Have a Great Father's Day
My brother, a father. A poem by me to him. My brother, a father? Who knew that would be? The boy who burned ants. And fell flat from a tree. My brother, a father? Don't even go there. He who laughed with abandon when he shaved off my hair. My brother, a father? It's crazy, I'm sure! the boy who tickled me silly. Evil to the core. My brother, a father? What next, I pray tell. This world is driving in the fastlane to hell. My brother, a father? who knew it could be so? That he'd be a first-class dad. The best father and a great bro. Happy Father's Day!
My Brother and Me . . . Doing our own thing, but respecting each other all the way . . . Giving each other space, but being there when it counts . . . Not always together, but always connected . . . That's us. Thinking of You on Your Birthday
This Birthday Note Is About a Wonderful Brother This is a birthday note about a brother. It's about someone who never gets to hear, nearly enough, what a wonderful guy he is. He's a person who has been thanked by my heart for a hundred things, but hardly ever... by my words. And he is an amazing guy who has always been appreciated so enormously, but for reasons that have only been known to me! So, Brother, I thought it might be time to do something about that... I am sorry that I don't tell you more often how much you mean -- and how much you have always meant -- to me. We have a closeness that doesn't need to be measured in miles. Ours is the warm and sharing kind that has always been measured in memories made, reassurance given, and the nicest kind of smiles anyone could ask for. You are a big part of my life, and you always will be. And I don't know what I did to deserve such a great brother, but whatever it was... I hope you know that I treasure you so much, and I'm eternally grateful that we are "family". - R. L. Keith Wishing You Happiness Today and Always
Some brothers are funny, some are real smart. Some brothers eat fruitcake then lie down and fart. Some brothers sing carols and some follow sports. Some brothers wear suits; some, sandals and shorts. Some brothers are silly all the year long, [They still write to Santa---and man, that's just wrong.] Some brothers are rivals, and some are friends, too. But the best one of all is the brother called, YOU! Merry Christmas.
