Dear Brother: The Johnny Walker Commercial

     With one view, and the hundred or so that have transpired since I'm not so sure whether it's the video or the poem that strikes me the most.  I had two step brothers growing up, one I knew better than the other.  But, neither well.  I substituted good friends in a brothers place over the years, and my commitment to them has never wavered, however that commitment may not always be prominent.  I'll let you flesh out your opinions:

Walking the roads of our youth,
Through the land of our childhood, our home, and our truth,
Be near me, guide me, always stay beside me so I can be free.
Let’s roam this place, familiar and vast,
Our playground of green frames, our past,
We were wanderers. Never lost, always home,
And every place was fenceless and time was endless.
Our ways were always the same.
Calm my demons and walk with me brother,
Until our roads lead us away from each other.
And if your heart’s full of sorrow, keep walking. Don’t rest.
And promise me from heart to chest to never let your memories,
Die. Never.
I will always be alive and by your side. In your mind,
I am free.
