First Love (poem)

I think of you
the sun shines
close my eyes

imagine

you at my side
inseparable
always young in memory
warm sand between our toes
building castles
hand in hand running into the waves

always laughing

I’d die to protect you
–  my brother

but you left first
now you remain
forever young
