For My Sister - Poem by Angela Wybrow

This poem was inspired by the character, Eve, in the TV show 'Casualty', when she told Tina that she'd lost a sister years ago:

Maybe I took you for granted
And we didn't always get on,
But deep down I still love you,
And I miss you now you're gone.

We had some good times, as sisters do:
Going to parties and the local discos.
Sharing each others make-up
And lending each other clothes.

I've suffered in silence
Since you passed away.
I wish I could turn back time
And change that fateful day.

Your photo on the mantelpiece
Smiles back at me.
Your youthfulness frozen in time
For everyone to see.

Sisters are important -
Back then, I didn't realise,
But now, when I think of you,
The tears well up in my eyes.

If only I could talk to you now.
Life's ups and downs we'd share,
But I carry on in life alone,
Knowing you're not there.
