I already knew he was perfect.
But the fact that he continues to amaze with
his unselfish acts of kindness just baffles me
because we are of the same cloth.
Or we were…. But at some point though, the grain of his fabric
has become so much more pure and defined.
Not sure if it is due to the clarity of his convictions
or the determination of his soul to be a way-maker.
But regardless, he has become everything to everyone.
A retired soldier, he still keeps the cadence of an army brigade
and the oversight of a Battalion Commander on the verge of war.
And yet, the fact that his knees still knock
when he speaks of his love for his mother
only proves that he is human, and he is my brother.
