Oniichan
Written 1/27/07

I figured out what was in my head—
it wasn't love.
Not romantic love, anyway.

I wanted a brother.
That's all it was.
Misguided, perhaps.
Misinterpreted,
misunderstood,
but in the end,
that's still all it was.

You know,
you're the closest thing I have
to an older brother.

Thanks for everything, oniichan.

Note: "oniichan" is an affectionate Japanese term for "older brother." I'm a dork, I know.
