This song is about the mortal journey of my brother, Bryan, though I’ve taken a bit of poetic license in relation to some of the events. I give more detail about him and his experience in the story behind the song, Trail of Tears.
Bryan was eleven months older than me. I remember him as a charismatic storyteller, a prolific prankster, having a bright aptitude for the learning of languages, wonderfully adept at singing harmony, and someone who was full of remarkable faith. He is a beautiful man with a merciful and kind heart. I trust I’ll get to see him before too long.
Look for me, brother!
