Little Brother Return


June 24, 1985

Little Brother,
Forgive my actions,
Return us to
The way we were.

I was wrong
To leave as I did;
I should never
Have broken faith.

I hurt you
As no one else could;
I treated you
With a false heart.

I still love you,
Little Brother,
I still need you
To love me.

Your love is precious,
Your love I need;
I never again
Will give you such pain.

So long as you want me,
So long as you care,
I will always
Be with you.

My actions were stupid,
Childishly so;
I knew that you
Were the one for me.

Please forgive
My foolish actions;
Please return us
To the way we were.
