Saying Good Bye


You left too early, my dear sister,
My heart still aches for you, after so many years,
I yearn for your presence,
And to be comforted by an older sister.

The leaves have fallen,
The air has turned cool.
My furry friends are migrating.
And Time has flown by.

I wish,
That you were here,
To enjoy the world's many gifts with me;
Happiness, laughter, love,
And being surrounded by loved ones.

Every February,
When the nights are cold,
And the days are gray,
I write you a little something,
Hoping that you're still there.

But it's not the same,
Without you.
Sometimes, I cry myself to sleep,
Or I enthrall myself,
To imagine, what it would be like,
If you were still here,
By my side.

I now understand that you're no longer coming back.
But, perhaps,
I'll see you one day.
One day.

    The departed are never far off, they always smile back at us through our joys, laughter and tears. They are here with us now in spirit...So don't forget to remember them 'cause they will be back to us and us to them. Great Ballard (Report) Reply

    Sisters are like meandering rivers. They originate from the same source, take a deviated path, meander along, sometimes close by, sometimes distant, until they fall into the sea and meet again, merged.
    So, perhaps! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
