Brandon (RIP)

Brandon (RIP)


A name so generic

Not to me

Brandon signifies someone who I loved like a brother

A bond I shared with no other

But, on one tragic night he was taken from me

Not just me, the entire community

But, amidst the sadness there was unity

As a duo, we were more than a terror

But in a blink of an eye I was your pallbearer

But what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger

But without you, days are longer

My personality is more somber

But I use you as motivation

Opportunities I take without hesitation

Think less say more with a sharp tongue

And like your favorite song you’ll stay forever young
