Letter to my brother

Not until we are lost..
Do we begin to understand ourselves..

The soul which has no fixed purpose in life is lost..
To be everywhere, is to be nowhere..

If you do not step forward..
You will always be in the same place..
Running ain’t freedom..

I may not be there yet, but I’m closer than i was before..
Discovery consists not in seeking new lands..
But in seeing with new eyes..
A smooth sea never made a skillfull sailor..

Life is short..
There is no time to leave important words unsaid..
Some people come in your life as blessings..
Some come in your life as lessons..
You came as both..
As iron sharpens iron, so did you sharpen me as a friend and person..

The worst sin I committed towards you, my brother..
Is not to be indifferent or neglected you lately..
But to acknowledge you for what you are worth to me..

Rare as is true love, true friendship is rarer..
Friendship, like the immortality of the soul, is too good to be believed..
Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend..
You can always tell a real friend..
When you’ve made a fool of yourself..
He doesn’t feel you’ve done a permanent job..

The greatest gift of life is friendship ..
And I have received it..
So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart..
I shall say that life is good..

When you stop chasing the wrong things..
You give the right things a chance to catch you..
It is important to expect nothing..
To take every experience, including the negative ones..
As merely steps on the path and to proceed..
Remorse is the echo of a lost virtue..

The past we shared may be good, but you can’t focus on it forever..
You have to focus on what’s coming to you and make it better than the past..
Even though we’ve changed and we’re finding our own place in the world..
We know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face..
We’ll come to each other..


I rather walk with a friend like you in the dark..
Then walk alone in the light..

My desire is to stand up and brush myself off..
Forget all the reasons why it won’t work..
And believe the one reason why it will..
For the mistakes I made and will make and ask for your forgiveness..

Forgiveness is not always easy..
At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered..
Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles..
A headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth..
To forgive the one that inflicted it..

Forgiveness is an act of the will..
And the will can function regardless of the temperature of the heart..
Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life..
Forgiveness says you are given another chance to make a new beginning..
Forgiveness is the needle that knows how to mend..

Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten..
You don’t choose your family..
They are God’s gift to you..
As you are to them..

Family is like branches on a tree..
We all grow in different directions..
Yet our roots remain as one..
Family is not an important thing.. It’s everything!

I’ve given it my all.. I’ve done my best.. Spilled my heart and soul out..
Now I’m ready with my family and loved ones to begin the next phase of our lives..
There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship..

All for one and one for all..
My brother and my friend..
What fun we have..
The time we share..
Brothers ’til the end..

No family is perfect..
We argue, we fight, we even stop talking to each other at times..
But in the end, family is family!..
The love will always be there..

One love bro!..
