Again the month of October is here,

We are lonely here wthout you, and sadness marks our way
This life is not the same to us since God called you away
We alone know how much we miss you, few have seen us weep
We shed our tears from a broken heart when others are aslwwp
Enshrined within our hearts you still live on,
A thousand memories keep your presence near
Although one year has passed since you have gone
On that lone journey to another sphere
No day has passed without some loving thought,
So tender memory of the joy you brought
- Mum's boy, dad's pal

I never thought when you left home
You would no more return,
That you so soon in death would sleep,
And leave us all to mourn
The stars shine on a treasured grave
Of my brother I love but could not save,
To have, to love, and then to part,
Is the saddest story of the human heart
- Inserted by his loving sister Shirley
