DAY 8 - OTTAVA RIMA: BROTHER

in ottava rima — an Italian form that, in English, usually takes the form of an eight-line stanza of iambic pentameter, with a rhyme scheme of a-b-a-b-a-b-c-c

Brother, you are a source of my constant strength
You always stand by me, in my good times and bad
You are here with me when I am exhausted and spent
You help me vent whenever I am sad.
You help me move on, and never let me repent
With your soothing, encouraging words you make me glad
You are the epitome of love, laughter, fun and grace
Oh Brother, You are the one I will always embrace!
