Poetry by Roxane Faulkner
This poem is dedicated to my big brother Thomas Joseph Liggett. He passed away in a fire at age 14. I was only 8 at the time so it was really hard on me. I could never get over his death. Writing poems help me let go of my feelings and the pain I feel for the loss of my brother, my best friend.
I wrote this poem after my sister had her third miscarriage. I really love her and I know she wants another baby but I just don't think she is ready for another. So I wrote this poem to her to let her know how I feel about her situation and hopefully she can just learn to live life happily with the one daughter that she does have.
