A Letter For My Sister

You’ve left this life at only 17 years... God will offer you peace and a place in heaven,
my dear sister...

For longing, today I write you...

I’ll find you there up between lights and shadows
You, old host, please, wait me at the door of the sky...
I don’t know the way but when my time is coming
Give me your wings for a moment and I’ll learn to fly

I’ve made a sea from my tears... I’ve cried so much.
When God has took you at Him forever...
I’ll never understand the rules of this passing life
And why the fate didn’t want to let us together?

I’ve called you between angels...You didn’t answer me
But last night you were here and have left for me a flower
When you saw my eyes so sad, you cried with me
Imploring God one more time to bless me with His power

You’re gone in heaven long time ago... I remember that morning...
All these years the sky has cried for you like me...
You are still asking me in my dream if I’m happy
But you already know my pain which I don’t want to let you see

I’m writing you this letter, my angel from the sky,
But I’m looking on the paper... What shall I write more?
Don’t wait for me to let you know my loneliness
And how much I wish to be the kids we were before!

Now I finish my letter but how can I send it to you?
Your magic world is far away and there is no post
I’ll let it on the window... You can read if you come in my dream...
I’ll search the way towards you, as I've promised, my angel...
Keep a place for me near you and I’ll never be lost!

    What a beautiful tribute to your sister. I know she hears you.
    Some things seem impossible to get over but I pray you
    can move on and have a good life - that's what she would
    want for you. God bless you!
