Little Brother (For Joey)

A brand new face
That wears a smile
So pure and fresh
And free from cares
Little brother
So bright and small
With tiny feet
That run so fast
A laugh that breaks
Like shattered glass
And hands that reach
For everything
Eyes so round
That gaze at life
With wonder, joy
And fascination
And eyes that never
Drip with tears
From broken hearts
Or pained goodbyes
But only crying
From a fall
Or broken toy;
Little brother.
