There are no words that can ever be spoken
That truly capture how our hearts feel so broken.
You had to go…we now do understand
But we all miss the touch of holding your hand
Your light still shines and your love still grows
Your beauty still radiates and our hearts overflow
For one more minute to hold you so tight
We admire your brave and courageous fight
We know you are better now and feeling no more pain
Yet each day seems a lifetime without saying your name.
I find myself lost listening to the birds
Wondering if it is you singing those soft and sweet words
“It is okay, I promise. I am doing just fine.”
“When you get here with me we will drink some more wine.”
“I miss your laughter,” I say with a smile. “But, I am glad to know that you are okay.”
“I miss you so much and it won’t go away.”
“Especially today, it’s your birthday, you know. After all of these years I have never missed one.”
“But, this year is no different, as I stand, my face towards the sun.”
“I know you can hear me, and I feel you here, too.”
“Just like it’s always been……forever me and you.”
And, as it always was, so shall it always be.
Until we meet again, I will imagine eternity.
And spend the rest of this life keeping your love fresh and new.
“I love you, sweet sister….happy birthday to you!”
