For my sister

When you went home
On that day
A day, I will NEVER forget
A piece of me left with you
A piece that I don’t regret

To say I never knew you…..
Well….. that would be a lie
To say I’ll never see you
Well…. that just makes me cry

That day… that long, long, day

My heart aches

Pain
Hurt
Selfishness
Forgiveness
Longing
Memories

I just don’t know…..
Why, this had to be?
I just don’t know…..
Why it couldn’t be me?

You’re gone…..
And……..
I’m still here

My sister I’ll never forget

You were going to be ok they said
You reached to the sky
A tear rolled down
My eyes filled with hope
My heart swelled

Then there you lay….
Gone…….
But still here

Your body, finally at peace
Your soul soaring to the heavens
Your body, cold and stiff

Empty

Full of courage
Full of hope
Full of promise

But… gone….
Gone forever…..
Gone from me….

Hope
Wisdom
Faith

I know you’re here
I can feel you
I can love you

But…. it still hurts!
