I’ve Carried Brotherly Concern and Care

I’ve carried brotherly concern and care
Like leaden weights to hold me to the earth
For fear the whys would draw me to the clouds,
Ever to float, no bearings for to guide.

I’ve carried brotherly concern and care
Not knowing how to reassure that I
Have always held the selfsame anchor fast,
Yet that, for harbor true, will I vouchsafe.

I’ve carried brotherly concern and care,
The first among us guiding silently
Whereto, that first day, in our final home
He gently tread, estranged from worldly cares.

I’ve carried brotherly concern and care
Concern extending empty hands to give,
But taken, redirected to the downward path,
To follow flow, to settle in the heights.
