I miss the loud music coming from your place, I miss the smile upon your face.
I miss the way we fought and played, I miss seeing you here and there, I miss you so much the pain is hard to bare.
I miss your smell, I miss you with all my might, I miss the way we would fight.
I miss my brother, I miss my friend.
I miss you I love you until my life here ends.
I want to know what crossed your mind, Unspoken words you've left behind.
A peace has fallen upon your head, A taste of sorrow we have all been fed.
