What else can I say?

I can’t come any further
With love we said goodbye
I wish I was beside you now,
But only angels fly

I remember Xmas
You wanted chocolate from the tree
You climbed up the piano
Then fell and hurt your knee

You ran away and left me
On the way to school
I was run down by a bicycle
Children are so cruel

We cycled up to Arnside
We saw the Langdale Pikes
We saw the sands of Morecambe Bay
How we loved our bikes

We  didn’t go to Hazelslack
We didn’t have the time
We cherished the sweet memories
A holiday sublime

You asked me to come fishing
You hated being alone
I caught a fish and dropped it
Then we took the bus back home

Oh, brother dear, you lie alone 
In the Covid Ward
I know you will be suffering
This hits me very hard

Even worse for your dear wife
She gave you children five
She’s  cared for you for many years
Now she weeps  from the outside

Nobody can see you  now
Three months and a day
I once adored my brother 
What else can I say?
