Quadragennial by nefermose

Forty years you’ve been upon this planet.
Stable, true and strong resolve like granite,
Learning with you is a constant pleasure
That I bother not to even measure.

Your tenacity and mind, that's bolder,
Has encouraged me as we've grown older;
You remind me that we all have weakness -
Making sure I never yield to bleakness.

There is not another person living
Better suited or so deeply giving.
While the path ahead reveals its content
As your brother there I will be present.

This is a poem I wrote for my older brother on his fortieth birthday in trochaic pentameter.
