Together for the first time
Three brothers and me

Awesome hug from Gene
An embrace that rocked my world
My brother, my friend

Beautiful brown eyes
Heart of gold and cheery smile
Today I met Gene

Blessings one and all
Praise God for my brothers three
Wives and families

Judy and Marie
They were three then Jeannie died
My sisters in law

Great sorrow and joy
Memorial for Jeannie
I'm with my brothers

We celebrate life
Memorial tomorrow
Laughter midst the tears

Author's note: today has been a dream come true to finally be with my brothers. I've longed for all my life to finally meet them. Two and a half years ago, I met two of them and today we met together for the first time ever, the four of us in the same room together. If you have siblings don't let another day go by without telling them you love them.Appreciate them for the individuals they are.

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
