TOM’S POEM


What can I say about my brother, Tom?

That nothing on earth, could break our bond

We fought & fretted, like most siblings do

At times, thought each other was from a zoo.


He even saved my life, a time or three

And he teased me a lot, believe you me

No other brother could have been the same

He was unique, eccentric and quiet the bane.


A gentle manner, is what he did have

A kind of wit, that made you really laugh

A friendly handshake or pat on the back

A kiss on the cheek an a bit of a yack.


He touched people’s hearts in a special way

Never a bad word, would he ever say

He had a very good sense of humor

And would never think to spread a rumor.


Because of his health, he suffered a lot

But complained to anyone, he would not

What can I say about my brother Tom

He was all of this and much, much more.


Tom was the son of Doreen & Willis Piercy, brother to Cathy Rossiter and brother-in-law to Mark Rossiter, uncle to Angela Tsangaris (Stathis) and Steven Root (Sonia), great-uncle to Stathis & Stavros Tsangaris, Stefano Root
