Abstract:

This was a cute poem I gave my big brother, Aaron, as a gift on either his birthday or for Christmas.

Full Text:

 What is a big brother?
He’s strong enough to smother you in hugs.
He’s brave enough to keep you from harm.
He’s funny enough to make you laugh.
That’s a big brother.

What is a big brother?
He’s a good teacher and playmate.
He’s great at every sport imaginable,
(Or at least in my eyes he is!)
That’s a big brother.

 What is a big brother?
He’s always wearing a smile.
He’s always picking on you, but out of love.
He’s close enough to be called a friend.
That’s a big brother.

What is a big brother?
He’s listening patiently to you whine.
He’s big enough to chase away any bully.
(Unless he’s only 5’6” like mine, but he can still beat them up)
That’s a big brother.

 What’s a big brother?
You are.
In every single way you have loved me.
Now, it’s my turn to love you!
I love you big brother!
(Even though you are only 20 pounds bigger than me, and 1” shorter, you’re still qualified as a big brother!)
