Author's Note: This is a true story. All of it. That song, "All of Me," by Matt Hammitt, is the whole reason that I started loving my baby brother. This happened...four nights ago. I wrote it, but all the editing was done by Doitsu. I hope you guys like this, and I hope I have the power to touch you. I know I already have that power, though, as I used it to do the impossible. Please comment! Thanks! —Allison Abree Jones, aka Alice


I looked down at Orlando, my baby brother, who had a large brain tumor. Madre told me that he needs lots of love to be able to live. But I just couldn't bring myself to love him a all. Then "All of Me" played on the radio.

Afraid to love

Something that could break.

Could I move on

If you were torn away?

I stroked Orlando's cheek gently with two of my fingers.

And I'm so close to what I can't control.

I can't give you half my heart

And pray He makes you whole.

That was exactly why I couldn't love him. He was a losing battle against two different illnesses along with the brain tumor.

You're gonna have all of me.

You're gonna have all of me.

'Cause you're worth every falling tear.

You're worth facing any fear.

You're gonna know all my love,

Even if it's not enough;

Enough to mend our broken hearts,

But giving you all of me is where I'll start.

Then I realized something.

I won't let sadness steal you from my arms.

I won't let pain keep you from my heart.

I'll trade the fear of all that I could lose

For every moment I share with you.

Orlando was a gift from God. Every moment I got to spend with him was priceless. He was family, so it was my job to love him unconditionally.

Heaven brought you to this moment,

It's too wonderful to speak.

You're worth all of me.

You're worth all of me.

So let me recklessly love you, even if I bleed.

You're worth all of me.

You're worth all of me.

I refused to miss out on a single second that could be spent with him. He needed love. Love could be the cure to this all. Love from his big sister could save him. And even if he didn't make it...I still had to love him, because he is family.

Heaven brought you to this moment,

It's too wonderful to speak.

You're worth all of me.

You're worth all of me.

So let me recklessly love you, even if I bleed

You're worth all of me.

You're worth all of me.

Death could take him away, but I no longer cared about the scars that it would leave me with. I had to love him...

It's where I'll start.

Because he is my baby brother.
