Holly & Michael

In the quiet hours, when pain re-visits
These memories should also bring relief
Though strong in the wake of remembrance
May they also grant you peace, not just grief

The time was so fleeting, unfairly gifted
However fairness must reside there too
Such moments are not meant to be endured
Or understood by a handful such as you.

You picked me up and gave me all that you had
When such life was ripped from my own hand
I only hope that the strength was returned back
When on your own, you yourself could not stand

Sister, you will carry with you forever
What is held there in my own heart
A bond forged by heartache, tempered by recovery
And the knowledge that mother-child will never truly part.
