The Brother You've Always Been to Me

Not surprisingly, "The Brother You've Always Been to Me" was written for my brother.

Lyrics
The Brother You've Always Been to Me
Memories sweet and tender from so very long ago
Of a brother strong and wonderful who always loved me so
Fill my mind and my heart as I think of family.
That's the brother you've always been to me.

I remember how I worshiped you, thought you could do no wrong;
Skipping gaily at your side as I hummed a little song;
Milking cows and feeding chickens, petting sheep and kittens, too;
Loving all God's little creatures; This I learned from loving you.

Memories sweet and tender from so very long ago
Of a brother strong and wonderful who always loved me so
Fill my mind and my heart as I think of family.
That's the brother you've always been to me.

Now I see an older brother take his sister to the dance
Though his feet moved like lead weights and his heart far- from romance;
Driving hours alone together, singing songs along the way;
Driving many miles to be there on her special wedding day.

Memories sweet and tender from so very long ago
Of a brother strong and wonderful who always loved me so
Fill my mind and my heart as I think of family.
That's the brother you've always been to me.

Canning peaches late one evening as the baseball game played on;
Talking late into the night, though you must be up at dawn;
From the waters of baptism to a song that we both shared;
All these memories and more will always say how much you've cared.

Memories sweet and tender from so very long ago
Of a brother strong and wonderful who always loved me so
Fill my mind and my heart as I think of family.
That's the brother you've always been to me.
That's the brother you'll always be to me.
