on lost brother, and fathers

gone lost
somewhere
moving
to the beyond beyond

missing brothers
brothers missing
their fathers

so much more
than diminished
numbers

it is missing
every word they
don't write,
every song they
don't sing.




Here at the monastery we've lost a brace of brothers, and fathers.  We've decided to take practical action; in the hope that it'll be the answer to prayer.  Us monks love music, so we'll try to use this vessel to raise funds and awareness to save the lives of brothers, sons, and fathers.

Please check it out, join, support, and pass it on.

  1. It is sad to lose brothers and fathers. I am glad the community will gather to help those still here. I look forward to hearing more about this.

  4. I know what it's like to miss someone, to miss "every word they don't write [or say or sing or whatever]." Well put.

  6. Yes, definitely, there is so much more to missing than one realizes before one really, REALLY misses!

  7. Oh, how I relate. I lost two brothers a month apart in 2001.

  8. I cannot really know how it will feel... or maybe I will leave before my sister one day.

    Not so much missing their presence but more in missing their talents. Numbers can translate to increased donations brought by their contribution in talents! Very poignant call Brother Ollie!
