On Tuesday October 25th it will be a year since I lost my adopted "sis". Unexpected and so young, we miss her so much. I wrote the following poem for her.
Sometimes a memory pops up and I smile
Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I cry
Some are short, others linger awhile
Never forgotten as time goes by.
Blessed by your friendship and love
Welcomed as part of your family
Now an angel up above
Always watching over me.
Much too soon you were taken
My heart was broken, I began to weep
But my faith in God was not shaken
He needed another angel; but he left you in my heart to keep.
I often hear you in a song
I feel you in the wind
I see you in your family
I touch you by touching them.
Sometimes a memory overwhelms me
I close my eyes; the tears will start
Then the smile comes out
As once again your memory fills my heart.
