My Ode to my Brother

Manuel, 11 years old.

He was born on June 11th, 2004

I woke up one night...

And my uncle was in my parents bead...

I was really confused, so I asked, where are my parents?

And he answered, your brother is going to be born.

He was born.

After some years went by,

He was diagnosed with A.D.D, dyslexia and anxiety.

He had to switch schools because...

The first school that he went to,

Was not able to meet his needs as a desable student.

But there was one thing doctors couldn't see,

And family and friends could,

He has the biggest heart I have ever seen.

He needed to switch schools and leave some friends behind,

So he hangs out with them every weekened instead.

He made all new and different friends at the new school.

His best friend is going to die in about 5 to 10 years,

And he does not care,

Because he prefers to enjoy the present instead of worrying about the future

He is the best friend of all his classmates.

The best friend of all his classmates parents.

The best friend of all my parents friends.

And the best friend of my sisters and my friends.

He is the best friend anyone could have.

Apart from all his academic issues,

He is very creative, athletic, smart in other ways

And is interested in every single thing.

He can laugh, cry, sing, think, anything you want him to do with you.

He will do it.

He, is the most perfect brother I can possibly get.

I miss him a lot, but in four months, we will be reunited.

Looking forward for that moment.

Best friend/ brother.
