भावज्ञेन कृतज्ञेन धर्मज्ञेन च लक्ष्मण । त्वया नाथेन धर्मात्मा न संवृतः पिता मम ॥

श्रीमद्वाल्मीकिरामायणे अरण्यकाण्डे पञ्चादशस्सर्गः (२९ श्लोक)

Raama says “O Lakshmana! You are a dharmagnya, krutagnya. You even can understand my feelings and thought. As long as you are protecting Me, I will assume My father Dasharatha is not dead.”

 This gem of a shloka not only illustrates the great service of Lakshmana, but also showcases the love ShriRaama had on His brother.
