11 Years Later, He's Still My Best Friend


The boy was known to all as Dave Raj Banerjee Who was I to know he'd have so much energy When he came to us I wondered what all he does He is my brother And a better one, there is no other

He grew older and we grew closer We were smooth like butter, never any coarser I had this great responsibility to protect him Making sure that the light in his life was never too dim He is my brother And a better one, there is no other Every step that he took in his life was for me like living twice He did almost everything like me. And those memories were just as nice As the first time when it was me But this time it was he He is my brother And a better one, there is no other There was a year when we went to the same school I got to walk with him everyday. That was really cool. He walked into Tadlock for the first time And it was there he began his climb He is my brother And a better one, there is no other He was a Cub Scout and he's almost done He's gotten all the awards: every single one He'll be moving onward to Boy Scouts Where his spirit for adventure he will find out. He is my brother And a better one, there is no other When faced with science he is always hungry for more He learns so much about it, I worry he'll run out of science to explore Always asking me questions about things I have never heard prior He is constantly looking for a way to get one step higher He is my brother And a better one, there is no other And on January 27, 2013 when you have turned 11 I will still remember the face I saw when you first came from heaven I love you now and will love you forever on You are the best Dave and to me you're an Icon He is my brother And a better one, there is no other Happy Birthday Dave!
