Poem About Remembering Sister

I lost a sister 2 years ago. I don't know where this came from. I just sat down on her anniversary and wanted to write something for the rest of the family to remember her by. I hope also this will be used in many other ways :)

Her Home In Heaven

When God reached down
And collected her soul
She reached up knowing
She had to go

Slipping away peacefully
Her body remained
One final look back
She smiled

Reaching home again
A place she'd forgot
Past memories came flooding
With splendor and awe

God gave back sights
We cannot imagine
She finally found
Her home in heaven

We remember her daily
She does the same
We love her always
It will never change

When it's my time to go
There is one thing I know
That she will be smiling
All the way home

I lost my cousin suddenly on December 31 after a routine surgery. Our lives had drifted apart but I still remember all the great times I had with her and her sisters growing up. All the times at granny's and birthday parties. I can't believe she's gone but never forgotten. I love you Penni.

My "almost twin" passed into Heaven today in our hometown. She was my older sister by a year and a day, today when she passed away. Her body was riddled with cursed cancer, she who was once a consummate cumbia dancer.

She leaves behind so many who love her, to mourn her, to remember.
