When My Brother Cried

When my brother cried
He was 3, I was 5
In the middle of the night
Waken up by my parents' fight
He was horrified
A horizontal 8 his mouth like
So desperate he was
His face red, downwards were his eyes
All I remember
I felt so strong to cover him with my bigger arms
When my brother cried
So helpless
Yesterday night
He was 33 in a dark blue wedding night
I felt the same I realised
I wanted to cover him in my arms
For my heart melted
The same way it was
When he was 3 and I was five
Waken up by his cry
