About the Poem

This poem was written in dedication to my brother who was tragically killed in an accident while on vacation with his girlfriend in Antigua. I was proud to read it at his Memorial Service on May 14, 1999. Sadly he was only 33 years old and will be deeply missed by many.

Goodbye, My Brother

My brother Greg an awesome guy,
I don't know why you had to die.
You were so cute as a little boy,
You smiled at us and brought us joy.

Even though we had our little fights,
Over silly things like phone lines and wiring lights,
I never wanted to be a pest,
I needed your skills, cause you're the best.

I'm glad those times, were only a few,
It was hard for me to argue with you,
But that's just me, as you are you,
And in the end you always came through.

This is Lanesville where you are from,
We all are here with Deb and Mom,
Our hearts are broken, as you know,
We really can't bear to let you go.

Sometimes you were so crazy and loony,
Especially with the friends who call you "Cooney",
I know that everyone here will agree with me,
That the Lanesville Crew is the best there could ever be.

We wish so much that you were here,
Or just down "The Cove" havin' a beer.
It's happy thoughts that will get us through,
Like all the fun we shared with you.

And now my poem will come to an end,
Until the day we meet again,
I pray that you are now at peace.
Goodbye Greg With Love From Lis

I know exactly what your going through because i too lost my brother not too long ago about 3 months ago this Martin Luther Kind day he was still young and we don't know why he had to go, only God knows that and we have to accept the fact that he is in a better place now.

I really loved your poem. It fits my brother and I to a tee. I lost my brother in a motorcycle accident. I really miss him.
Everyone does not mourn the same'cause we all love differently. I am sorry you lost your brother, I lost mine when he was 31. The pain/ saddness is with me everyday but so is the joy of having in my life as long as I did. His memory now lives on through my children as well as his. Take care Ellen
Hiya , i was just pondering the web sights,,,, For you wee scone i am so sory for your loss. I lost my mum aged 57, bad for me but for a wee thing at 33. Go forward-he will always be in your heart and you will always carry him with you. ,,, Your lessons in life will be , that you are grateful, for the smile, hug, sigh, moment spent with him. god bless you x england hull 2006 - but you know it never does go awayxxxxxx
i liked the poem it shows the emotions u r going through but, instead u wrote it down on paper. I think that is a great idea because u r showing ur feelings but u put it in a way so that u can share with everyone great job
Lisa i think ur poem was really good um i just found out that i had an older brother and my parents won't let me b around him so i can sorta relate to ur poem and im so sorry about ur lose
I have voted this poem as I found it really moving. I lost my brother last year and it still hurts alot. What you have done is gave him something that he can be remembered by because thats the scariest part - being forgotten. Take Care Michelle Shearer

This is a very nice poem. I really did like it.
Hello, Am only 15 and your poem is realy nice and I got a brother who is one year older then me and I can't stand a mind of losing him so if you lost a brother I fell bad for you and keep up with those nice poems start to write happy stuff to take that bad memory away!
I can tell that it was truly written from the heart. Pain, such as the loss of a brother is. I cannot describe. PAINFUL. No other feeling like it in the world. I, too, lost my brother to cancer 6 months ago. When he was first diagnosed, I wrote a poem (an angry poem), but I'm trying to build up my courage to enter it anywhere. Maybe I'll post it in here. My deepest sympathy.
I thought this was one of the best poems that i have ever read. Ireally liked it alot.
Only Me
That was a really good poem. My little brother died about nine years ago, but i still miss him alot.
im 14 and i thought this poem was great and many other people thought so too! i lost my grandad in 2005 and was close to him. i have two older brothers who are the best and if i ever lost any of them i would have to go too, life wouldnt be worth living otherwise and they are great to me and my sisters, one of them ecspecially is like my dad who i dont no and i thsnk all that he has done for me. your poems are great and keep them up! kerry xoxoxoxo

Everything that you wrote is exactly how i felt deep down inside.

lisa, First off I just want to say that your poem was amazing. I just lost my brother in a motorcycle accident this past august. He would have been 18 this November 6th. Reading your poem brought back memories of my brother and me that I thought I had forgot. Thank you for giving me those memories back.
OMG! i am sooo sorry to hear about your brother!U no my brother died in a car wreak 3 years ago, and he was only 7. Thats what made me decide to read this poem because of the title.
ehy. this poem is beautiful. I hope your brother,Greg,is in a better place now and of course,he's not alone as you are not alone. He's with you,ALWAYS =°)

This poem is sad but great i fell sorry for you but you have a loveing heart to write a poem for you brother
i really likled this poem. i even printed it for mum to read because she lost her brother a couple of months ago from suicide.
Your poem was really good and very touching. My brother died when he was 3 yeras old and even though i didnt get to know him sometimes i think of how life would be if he was still alive. I look at his picture day and night and everytime i do i feel like crying. All of my friends have brothers and they always talk about the fun that they have with them and i cant be around people when they talk about their brothers.
lisa, my older brother died today so i know what your going threw. but alls i got to say know is that he's in a better place and always thinking about you and watching over you.
I had 3 brother and 1 sister, my mother is 85, my brother's are my very best friend's and my hero's. My sister is 7 year's older than me. She married when I was nine years old. My brother took care of me threw all my teenage year's while my mother and dad work. We lost our father in 1994, that was end of my life, I thought. Time goes by but dad nerver really left me, because I can still see him and feel him around me. Now it is 2005, this year I lost my baby brother Feb. 15th, he just went to bed and has a heat attact, I lost my brother Doug 5 monts later, he just fell over with a blood clot. Your poem remains me of them. Thank You

This is an awesome poem. It is amazing [but sad] to hear all of your stories of brothers passing in different accidents. I too lost a brother in an auto accident. It is nice to know that there are other people out there dealing with the smae thing and the fact that I am not alone.

your poem was absolutely beautiful.

This is a good poem because i lost a good frind that treated me like his brother. His name was brian and he died in a car crash 10 days after his birht day in july of 2003. He would have graduated but he died and the bad part is that the guy who drove the car and that was the cause of the accident he was in my class and i was just so mad at him.
I love your poem. I just lost my brother too on Wednesday November 3 2004. But the really bad part about that is that i never got to meat him. nobody did because he wasnt born yet. he had a twin sister. i just wish that he could of lived that way we could have our good times and bad. well any way i just wanted to let you know that your poem touched me. you are a good writer.

I was definetly touched by your poem. I had a brother that died in a tragic car accident and I wrote a poem for him and read it at his service. My brother was only 21. I just might have to post the poem I read for him. Sorry for your loss
I read this poem the day after i heard bad news. My good friend lost his 12year old brother due to suicide. Nobody knows why and will never know. But i feel for my friend and i was looking for a good poem to give him to give him hope, as days go bye. But this poem touched me and im sure it will go on to touch others. Im sorry for your loss, I'll never know exactly what it feels like to lose someone so close, but you made it so i could relate to my friend. Touching Poem.

A. on April 17, 2003. he was only 23 years old. he got hit by a drunk driver while walking down the road early in the morning after his girlfriend kicked him out of his house. he was an awesome brother and always looked out for his brothers and sisters. i will never forget when i heard the news he was gone. my heart dropped to the bottom of my stomach. to this day i am still wishing the news wasn't true and i could hold my brother in my arms and tell him how much i love him. my daughter's 2 and a half right now. i will always tell her of her uncle. good job on the poem it was awesome and very touching

Hi I think that your poem was great it reminded me of my brother he was only 16 when he was killed. Everyone say's to let it go. All you have to do is leave a space between you and just think that he is there.
Very good theres grief but yet they know that they;;ll meet again. keep writing it's lovely to think of the good times

Lisa, I really loved your poem, it made me think of my baby brother who was only 30 years old when I lost him back in November 2001, and it is still really hard on me. Your poem really reminded me of him. I think you are good at writing , keep it up & good luck to you .
I just wanted to say that I know what you feel. I lost my oldest brother when i was 5 and he was 20. I used to feel like he was the only one who loved me because he was the only one who spent time with me in my family. So now I still feel like no one loves me.

Lisa, I can sympathise with you and understand how you feel. Such a touching poem that made me shed a tear. My oldest brother also named Greg passed away 11 months ago at the age of 32. Following my brother's death, my uncle passed away 1 month later and 2 months later my grandfather also named Greg. 3 deaths in one year has had a huge impact on my life.

i thought that the poem was very touching and i can not tell you i know how you feel because i dont. my older brother though almost died when he was 2 years old when he got hit by a car and i could not even bare him dying. your poem was very sweet and i hope that people will look at it and make the right choice.
I felt the pain through her words- it almost bought a tear to my eye and I trully relate to this poem- only I could never express it like this writer has
I lost my brother too, from cancer, he was 24. I know how you feel. Your poem is beautiful, it made me cry, for it reminded me of him so much. Its been 7 years now, I still hurt so much, the pain is so strong i doubt it will ever go away.

Lisa that is a beautiful poem. I lost my brother in a tragic car crash in 1964. He was four years older than me. So I relate to your poem very much. May God keep him always in your heart.
i loved your poem, it reminded me of when i lost my brother in a car accident. thax for showing me that it's ok to grieve, and that i'm not the only one hurting.
It toched my heart
I loved it . I cried everytime I read and I printed it out and showed everybody.
I thought this poem was sad but good. It reminded me of my brother, who also died. I loved hime very much. It was a perfect example of how me and him acted. Keep up the good work.
I'm truely sorry to hear about your brother, although i just wanted to tell you that u have a lot of talent, so keep on writing! I wish you the best of luck! And i know although nothing can replace a brother, i hope in someway your life may become happier as time eases the pain. xoxo

I really like this poem.It sounds like me and my bros. Is is true if it is i am really sorry
I can stongly relate to every thing in this poem. They weren't killed, but it seems that way after they were kicked out of my life forever. Reading this took me back to when they were here and the joy we had together. Now we can no longer do so for i can not see them.
I think you must have had a wonderful brother to create a poem as beautiful as this one. Unfotunatly I can relate all to well to this. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family.

i really enjoyed reading your poem in memory of your beloved brother. i am sorry for you and your family's loss. you are in my prayers. i write best when there is death near me or near someone close to me. keep writing and good luck!! valeria
What a sweet gesture - it reads like a letter left in someones suitcase...not so much a final farewell as a "we had fun, see you soon"...
This poem really touched my heart.
This poem really scared me at first because my name is Lisa and my brothers name is Greg, but it was beautifully written.
i liked it alot. my brother moved out of my house this summer and feels like he moved out my life. love my brother than words can say i really miss him. and when i read ur poem i thought about him, loosing him. i feel bad that your brother died cause i know i would be so sad. if this was a grade i would give you about 1000%
