Chorus
Here today, gone tomorrow
And yet I feel so much sorrow
You always kept it real
If you’ve lost a loved one, then you know how I feel

Verse 1
Sadly it’s that time of year again
Where it feels like I just can’t get rid of the pain
I have tried my possible best to block it out of my brain
But that has completely proven to be in vain
Even though I am a firm believer
That time itself is a great healer
Just like that; the years have suddenly gone by
And I know you are in a much better place so why oh why do I still cry?
On the 18th May 2004; my younger & only brother’s life was cut short
You will always be remembered & forgotten not
That fateful morning of the 11th May 2004 when you were hit by a van
Has kinda moulded me into the man that I am
You went into a coma & remained in that state for a week
With tubes going in & out of your body making you look so meek
As I sit here writing this poem with tears rolling down my cheeks
I have to admit that there are times when everything looks rather bleak
I remember staring at you on the hospital bed seeing you looking helpless & totally weak
Willing you to open your mouth & speak
Yet only a couple of months before your death; you were starting to hit your peak
A handsome young lad who always stole the show like Slick Rick
All I can do now is take each day as it comes & bless God for it
Cos no one is promised tomorrow so everyone please live for the moment

Chorus
Here today, gone tomorrow
And yet I feel so much sorrow
You always kept it real
If you’ve lost a loved one, then you know how I feel

Verse 2
You were only 19 & so full of life
Yet you were taken away from us when car accidents were so darn rife
There are many things I wanted us to do that seemed so pertinent
Like travel from city to city; country to country; continent to continent
We spoke numerous times about conquering the world together
Even without the best laid plans; we had a belief & bond that was stronger than ever
Everything seemed to be within our reach & our grasp
But the Good Lord always has to have the last laugh
At this moment in time, my head feels so sore
And I try to imagine what your life would have been like before death came knocking at your door
Would you have been married already with at least one kid?
Or would you have been messing around like I once did?
Would we have achieved everything we set out to do at the start?
Or would we have let the haters & jealous ones tear our hopes, dreams & us apart?
I guess I’ll never know though I’ll give you the benefit of a doubt
A boy of intelligence, intensity & integrity was what you were all about

Chorus
Here today, gone tomorrow
And yet I feel so much sorrow
You always kept it real
If you’ve lost a loved one, then you know how I feel

Verse 3
Like a Eureka moment, I finally figured out why the pain feels so raw
And it just hit me like a sucker punch to the jaw
Within the last few weeks; every time I look at your nephew’s face
All I see is you like you’ve completely assumed his body & taken his place
He has your skin tone, same shape of head & will defo be tall
He even uses his left foot like you did to kick a ball
The resemblance is uncanny & even a bit scary
Perhaps it’s God’s way of telling me that I don’t need to worry
I may not have always told you how much I love you
But I hope this poem goes some way to showing you that I actually do
R.I.P. lil Bro until we meet at the crossroads
I’m gon keep holding it down for you & pray that we don’t become 2 lost souls

Chorus
Here today, gone tomorrow
And yet I feel so much sorrow
You always kept it real
If you’ve lost a loved one, then you know how I feel
