Ashes To Ashes, Dust To Dust - Poem by Debbie Steyn

my sister so dear
I hurts me seeing you like this
wounded the same way as me
your eyes filled with fear

Stand proud and face the world
You have me by your side
to fight for you till death
for you have never lied

your innocence breaks my heart
I can't protect you for ever
Your life has to start somewhere
you can survive, you are clever

hear my plea from the spiritual realm
I'm here when you need me
all you have to do is long
and there i will be

take on this life
this life that took mine
hold on to your heart
and remember to learn, time after time
