Juliet Lubega

Little brother


As the curtain draws

The memories surface

The baby I held in my arms

Our childhood laughter

Through good and bad times

A bond held us together

As brother and sister


The times we fell out

The times we made up

You looked up to me

Little did you know

You were my rock

My ever flowing river

Of love and comfort


Now that you are gone

The smiling faces your children

Hold the bond between us

Their angelic voices call


I will forever be Senga, father’s sister
