Dedications: Brother forever – Published by Roberto Spike on 20/10/2018
[Dedicated to my brother Beppe]
You do not know how I miss you Brother,
how many times I stop to think
remembering your smile
and your great desire to live.
How many have we combined together eh?
When I think about it I burst out laughing
and how many more I would have liked to do it
together with you, at your side, as brothers.
Today I no longer have that sense of guilt
for not having insisted that night
to stay and sleep at my house
I wonder if the accident could be avoided.
I cry while I write these words
the hands tremble without stopping
with that damn lump in my throat
that almost seems to want to kill me.
Forgive me if only once I have come
to see you at the cemetery
but I know you will understand me
useless now cry on a grave.
A part of me, with you, is dead
in that damn morning
I could not believe those words
and I can hardly remember the reaction.
I wanted so much to be able to share
with you still a million things
and the only thought of not being able to do it
it’s a dagger stuck in my chest.
Whenever I step near you
I offer you a gesture, my greeting
even if I know it’s useless
maybe only to hear you again.
