Sister Death Poem

The poem is something that came to me about 6 months after my sister's sudden death. I found her dead on her bedroom floor when I went in to change her bandages from a recent surgery. A blood clot from that surgery is what killed her. The poem tells my journey through grief - from the initial disbelief to the final acceptance. There is not a day that goes by that I don't miss my best friend.

Missing My Sister And Best Friend

© Belinda Stotler
One morning I found you in eternal sleep;
I tried to wake you as I began to weep,
But all my pleas you could not hear;
Oh if I could have only kept you near,
Away from the voices of those who went before,
Who beckoned you to come to that distant shore.

I find it so very hard to believe
That you have gone and I must grieve;
I call out your name -- you answer not,
And I look for you in every familiar spot.
Everything seems so strange and surreal,
I ask everyday is it a dream or real?

Where are the soft brown eyes of affection?
Where is the laughter and talk of childhood reflection?
Where is the loving care when I was sick or sad?
Where is the generous soul for which I was glad?
Where is the forgiving and understanding heart?
Where are the bonds that were there from the start?

I miss all the little ways you showed you cared,
For there were so many good moments we shared;
Looking back on my life's assorted scenes,
I realized you taught me what love truly means;
You were my trusted confidante and best friend,
On whose loving support I could always depend.

I look at your smiling face in all my photos;
Memories flood my mind as I touch the mementos
From the happy times you and I have had,
But now these bring tears and make me sad;
For the time together went by in a wink,
Life was not as long as we'd like to think.

Sometimes memories bring comfort and make me smile,
But there are times when grief takes over for a while;
Friends offer gentle words and prayers to console,
And tell me what has happened to your loving soul;
Can it be true what they say of time healing grief?
Is it enough when they say death has given you relief?

Can we believe what others say of a better place,
Where our beloved ones rest in God's warm embrace?
I should be happy you're free of pain and sorrow,
And rejoice that you'll always have tomorrow.
How can I then be so heartbroken and selfishly cry,
Return to me from that peaceful place where you lie!"

Now I look down at your name on a cold hard stone
That says little of the loving light you have shone;
It tells nothing of the wonderful person you were,
And only serves to remind me of the painful loss I endure;
But I know your kind soul wants no tears or pain,
Instead you'd want warm memories and love to remain.

Although I cry and stand grief-stricken by your grave,
I promise not to forget the loving memories you gave;
But still I miss you so very much my sister dear,
And your caring words I once again long to hear;
My heart's only solace is one day I will see you as before,
Beckoning me to come join you on that white distant shore.

  • Hello, my name is Samantha. My sister died 9 years ago when we were five years old...
    she died due to kidney problems
    she was everything to me
    her long black hair
    brown eyes
    she was my older twin sis
    older by 7 minutes
    I miss her so much
    I cried for months
    it's been nine years since then

    and starting a week ago... i can't get her out of my head
    she won't leave
    i try to get my mind off of the topic for a minute or 2
    but she keeps coming back...
    is she trying to tell me something
    Lacey... my dear sister.... i love her so much... i wish she was here with me... life would be so much easier

  • This may not be about my sister, but I lost a friend last Friday. She was like a sister to me. She died in a car crash. The person who ran into her was a woman who was putting on her make-up. We and more I, could not believe how selfish the lady was being. She was all, well I didn't see her so it's not my fault. I miss her every single day. So yeah, I'm in the midst of grieving.

  • I lost my baby sister in words can describe the pain of losing a sister. In fact that year was the worst year of our lives, a few months earlier my dad was sentenced to death in a foreign country and my sis was my pillar of strength through the ordeal then she one day went to a party and the next day she vomited blood and died just like that. The sad part is I don't know what hurts most, her passing or the way she passed. This poem really made me cry but its a very beautiful poem. They say time heals but why do I feel so sad even after this time..maybe they are wrong...may all of you who lost loved ones put your lives in Gods hands.

  • Hi, this is Lhalie, 19 years old. My sister died the other day 1st of July 2010 she was only 20 a graduating student, she doesn't drink or smoke then she died due to kidney problems. We didn't grew up together cuz mum and dad separated when I was 5 and mum took me and she stayed with dad and with our little brother, he is 18 now. Me and my sister were really close to each other we always tried to find a way to keep in touch. Monday afternoon I received a message from dad he said "she's really bad now so hurry up" so I took a shower get ready because they live 2 hours away from where I'm living now. When I was on a bus like 5 minutes to their place dad sent me a message that she's gone and yes I didn't get a chance to hug and kiss her hand goodbye. I couldn't visit her before because I had to attend my class and I talked to her last week she said she'll be fine and wait for me but she didn't. Things are different now it's just me and my little brother because the fella up stairs love to hurt me so much..

I try to block it out sometimes because I can't deal with it. I loved her so much and she loved me so much too. She was the most kind, thoughtful and gentle person I've known, I hope she can hear me while she is in heaven with the angels.

  • Last halloween I lost my beautiful brown eyed sister. She died of liver and kidney failure. To this day I keep thinking she's gonna show up at my door! With a story of where she's been and what she's been doing. Her smile was made from sunshine, and her eyes were made from the dark rich soil of the earth. Her heart was molded from gods own hands. It does not beat anymore, and I just can't make myself believe she is not coming to spend the night with me one more time. I really liked your poem. It made me think of her big brown eyes. She was my brown eyed girl, that sister of mine. I miss her so much. She was only 43. Her drivers license says it does not expire till 2013, so how can she be gone? Her license is still good! I have her purse, and I am still very sad, like it was last night. How does this happen to such a good heart?

  • My sister was 16 when she past away I only 14. I'm 26 now and she has been gone 12 yrs today. I cry every time I see her picture or just think to long about one memory. She was my best friend! The only person that really got me. She made everything perfect and I just miss her sooo much. A big piece of my heart is missing. She wasn't sick she was depressed and took her own life. Looking back I can't think of anything that could make things that bad to do something so permanent. I have so many unanswered questions. It's nice to just not feel weird for missing her so much. I thank you for the chance to read your poem and everyone's comments below it. They have helped to ease my pain.

  • I only recently lost my sister and the pain I feel is like no other I've felt. I'm 28 and my sister was the baby of 5 siblings. My sisters death was unexpected! They call it SUDEP!! Epilepsy sufferers should be aware there is a killer out there among Epilepsy sufferers. The doctors may not warn you as they have not researched the illness enough. My sisters death certificate says 'Cause Unknown' This makes me sad as they have no facilities to gain the familiarities of this brain disease! Medicines can ease and help but they do not cure and occasionally sufferers can have reactions to the medicine. Why are these facts so hidden???!! My heart goes out to anyone who has loved and lost due to Epilepsy.

  • I wrote this poem from the deepest pain I have ever felt in my life. Writing the poem was a way to get the pain out and it was originally written only for myself. When I came across this site, I read some very touching poems that helped me to cry and release the pain. It also made me realize there are many who share my deep, painful loss. So, I decided to share my poem, hoping it would help others deal with the nearly unbearable heartache. Reading all of the lovely comments about my poem has helped me deal with my grief. I thank you all for helping me by sharing your feelings and stories of your own sister and best friend. It has been 3 years since my sister, Brenda, died. I don't cry everyday like I did that first year, but I still miss her so very much.

We all loved her in the family and she was too quiet, always avoiding trouble. I loved her so much.

  • I have read your poem a few times and I cry everytime. I lost my baby sister in 2009, on Dec 27th (the day after boxing day) we were so close and I loved her so very much. I'm so lonely without her, I sometimes pick up the phone to call and listen to her beautiful voice then I realize she's no longer here. She died instantly with a massive heart attack, without a word of warning. It is almost one year later and I can't get her off my mind for one day. There is a pain deep down in my heart and soul which I can't control, If I hear a song that she liked I just start crying, I pray and ask God to help me to accept her death, and now it is that time of the year again, I will relive everything I felt last year. Your poem is so very lovely, everything I wanted to say about my sister is there. the brown eyes and all. Thank you for this poem and may you and your family know how much I feel your pain. I will always miss my baby sister but I know God will help me through it all.

  • Your poem touches me in the deepest crevices of grief. My beautiful sister Pat, was an amazing humanitarian and animal guardian. Pat and I were like two peas in a pod since we were tiny kids. I must admit, I feel very hollow and empty struggling through life now. It seems the genuine laughter and warmth of living, died with my Pat. This will be my first Christmas without my loyal sister and best friend. I found Patty dead in her home, the victim of a scourge of a disease she had suffered since she was six years old; diabetes. My sister did not want to die. I didn't get to her quickly enough this time. My sister Pat meant the world to me, and always will. There are no more seasons, only dark days, and one long and constant pain, draining the colour from everything around me.
    Thank you for sharing your poem, it meant a lot.

  • I lost my sister to suicide early 2010. It is still so hard to accept and not still feel the sharp regret and deep longing to have her back with us. I wish so much that things had been different so that she did not feel compelled to take this path. She was my whole family, my best friend, and the light of my life.

    When I read your poem, I could relate to every line, and you have managed to express many thoughts and feelings I had trapped inside - it seemed as though the poem was closely describing my own beloved sister. So I thank you for finding the right words, for writing and sharing this poem to give comfort to others who grieve still.

  • Your poem has touched me so very deep. I lost my sister, Dara, 10 years ago today. She ended up with type 1 diabetes after giving birth to my nephew the year before. My younger brother and I wanted to see her at the hospital, but weren't able too. My dad woke us up at 3am, we were going to go say our goodbyes. We didn't even get to walk out the door when my mom called. She let my dad know that she was gone. I know how it hurts not to get to say goodbye or beg to hold on. She was my older sister. We were so much alike, you could have said, we were twins born two years apart. She was my other half. Even today I don't know how to deal with many of life's stepping stones. She was my backbone, my protector, and my best friend. Thank you for sharing your life with us.

  • Belinda, thank you for the poem, my tears are running across my face. I lost my younger and only sister Lydia 06/20/11 in Germany. She died the day I arrived from St. Louis, MO and I saw her one last time in the hospital. She did however not regain consciousness and died that very same day. She was in a coma for 5 days and everybody said she held on until I saw her one last time. But she died without me holding her, because I had gone to her families house and change my clothes after the long flight. Just as I and her husband and only son wanted to go back to the hospital we received the call that she had passed on. I am re-living this over and over again. She was only 48 years old and died of breast cancer which had spread to her liver and brain. In the end she contained a lot of fluid in her stomach and the liver failed, she was really yellow.
    My little sister was my big help and I could come to her with anything, she always was so carrying and tried to help. I cannot believe she is gone forever, especially on weekends (Saturdays) we called us and just cached up. I miss her so very much, I often wish I could just follow her; and I do not even believe in an afterlife. All I know a life without her around, is really no life either. Good bye my sister Lydia, I will miss you forever, it does no get easier with time.

My sister committed suicide at her 39 years, she left the best memories in my life. I can't describe the pain she left as she took her life. But sure this poem reads my mind and touches my heart.

  • I am 15 years old now and my older sister died 7 years ago and it is still hard for me to think of it because every time I do I begin to cry...She died in her sleep and now if I am sick I can't fall asleep.. This poem makes me think of her so much.. I remember telling everyone that she is still alive and I remember sitting in my room in the corner calling out her name just waiting for her to answer back but she never did.....

  • This poem really touched my heart, I lost my best friend of 30 years recently, It was so very sudden and unexpected, I am still trying to figure it all out, she left behind her 4 year old son and 14 year old daughter, I believe the hospital overdosed her because she only went in for a simple infection on her leg and was dead within 7 hours of arriving at the hospital, when the doctor came out and told us she didn't make it, my heart fell to the floor, I am still is disbelief and my heart feels like it will never heal, thank you so much for your beautiful words they really fit the way we felt for each other...

  • She was the one who understood me, listened to me, thought of me, laughed at me, stood by me, needed me and loved me. She left this life on December 16th, 2010 and with her she took a piece of my history while leaving a void in my future. We shared 36 years together but 136 wouldn't have been enough. Even now, almost a year later I know I haven't come close to reaching the depth of my sorrow. My mind keeps me from looking upon my pain as a whole. Keeps me from falling into the pitch blackness of misery and instead allows me small shockwaves of painful reality before closing the door saving me once again from a pain so vast I would be surely be lost in it greatness for all of my days. (Take it with you Sis. hold onto it till the next time.)

  • The day I lost my sister my world came to an end. She always called me on my birthday, and Christmas, this year I won't have that. This Christmas isn't the same. I look around, how can it be happy, or Merry. I won't ever hear her voice again, it don't seem right she's gone. I want her back more then ever. I need to here her voice, to tell me I LOVE YOU SIS. It hurts so much my heart aches so much for her. I sit and cry for her, hoping it will bring her back. I close my eyes to see your face and see all the memories of us, I see good and bad, I would change all the bad just to have you back and make your life better. But sis I know you had to leave me, but I will see you again. And hear your sweet voice again. I LOVE YOU MORE THEN YOU WILL EVER KNOW, You will always be in my HEART and DREAMS, and, always on my MIND. I LOVE YOU SIS.

  • I miss my sister so much. Jane was my best friend, my confidante, the love of my life and my rock. We were so close. She used to say together we made one good person. It's so hard living without her. We were both in our 50's and we lived together. She was disabled in 2000 and I was her caretaker, but she didn't really need much help. Though her life was not easy she was always positive. She adapted to all the medical crises she went through. I came home from work on April 4, 2008 to find her gone. I called 911 but she couldn't be resuscitated. I feel like if I had only been home a few minutes sooner she could have been saved. We had talked the night before and she said that she was feeling really strong and normal. I feel so hurt. It just wasn't fair. I didn't even get to say goodbye to her. She was born on Christmas Eve so the holidays can be really rough.

  • I lost my little sister just about 3 months ago unexpectedly. It's about her kidney problem. they said after she had her daily dialysis she just lay down and thought she was sleeping, the usual she does after dialysis, but she don't wanna wake up and she don't have pulse anymore when they try to wake her up. She is just 20 yrs old. She is the youngest of us 3. She is like my mini me, my twin, everywhere I go she's always with me. It's soo painful still and still not sinking in that she is gone. I read this poem and thought of her, our beautiful memories together. I missed her so much..if only I can see her one last time again..:(

  • I lost my sister to suicide this past year, she hung herself in my younger sisters home, she lived a couple weeks with no sign of improving, we decided to take her off life support. God gave us another 7 days with her. She was 36 years old. The death of my sister has been unbearable at times, it makes no sense why but it comforts me a little to know there are others who feel my pain. Thank You for your poem and stories, and thank you for listening.

My sister passed away due to an aneurysm I will never forget the day my mom call me said my sister had had another stroke but something in her voice told me this time was different from the 1st stroke she had. I prayed in silence all the way to the hospital but no matter how much I or anyone prayed god had already welcomed my sister with open arms, but I do thank you for those last moments with her to touch and hold her.

  • This poem truly touched my heart. I lost my sister 10 years ago. She was 20 years old and died of a massive heart attack. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't wish she was here and miss her dearly. She was 8 years older than me and more like my mother than my sister. My heart is irreparably broken. My life still feels empty without her. They say time heals all, well I'm still waiting.

  • My name is Sarah I live in Quesnel BC, 3 and a half years ago my little sister died. I was with my dad walking around Kelowna BC; she was in foster care I was supposed to visit her that day and we got this phone call from this person that my sister wasn't breathing very well. So we got a cab and rushed to the hospital and when we got there she was already gone. The priest told us she was already gone before the ambulance got there. They said she choked to death on some food because the foster mother went for a nap when my sis was still eating and she went to lay her high chair back so she could sleep and she just died choking in her sleep. I was only 9 years old and now 13 this year. I will always think of her and for every one else who lost a sister I will pray for you

  • This poem was very moving & stirred some deep emotions in my heart regarding my oldest sister who passed away at age 41. She was like a mother to me being 14 years old when I was born, so we grew up together with a bond more like "mother & daughter" until I reached my 20's then we grew closer as sisters...she was my idol! I loved her so much!! Time has eased the pain but not the desire or longing to see or talk with her again...Thank you for writing & sharing this beautiful poem! I'm so sorry for your great loss...

  • Words cannot express what I am feeling. I lived in Australia, my Sister Linda live in South Africa. I hugged and cuddled her 6 years ago. She passed away on the 4th May at 7 am following an aneurysm. 8 weeks prior she slipped on oil in a fish and chip shop. Following surgery she had a full recovery. She went back to work on Thursday 3rd, her boss had redone her office. I spoke to her on Thursday evening. Friday morning I got a dreaded phone call saying she had died on the toilet from an aneurysm. How can GOD be so cruel. She was my soul mate, my life. I have not made friends in Australia because I did not need to. She was with us daily thanks to Skype. I have three teenagers whose lives have been ripped apart. Their Aunty Lin was always there, she was indestructible. Lin, you compassionate heart, constant smile and kind words were continuous. I cannot think of life without you. I hope you are looking down on me. I love you more than life. Jacqueline

  • I lost my sister is August of 2010... Due to domestic violence... I feel everyone's pain her and I know it hurts. My sisters name was Andrena and we called her drena I called her dren... That was my sister my best friend my everything... I never met another pair of sister who bonded like us. The violent way she died I feel is so unfair but it was her time to go. If it wasn't, I'm sure she would still be here. Her birthday is 8/4/89 and she died 8/9/10 five days after her 21st birthday as you can see in the dates it's written weird but that's what gives me just a Lil bit of strength she wasn't supposed to be here that long.

    I lost my sister a year ago. I still can't accept the fact she is no more. I have all the photos wherever she is there in my iphone. When I open them I cry always remembering her. She was the most beautiful person by heart and equal to my mother. Now that I have lost her I have no one.

    I have never been able to make good friends coz I considered my sister to be the best and never required anyone. I cannot make my heart understand. I wait for the day God calls me so I can meet my sister again and see her beautiful and loving smile.

  • I lost my sister Terri on Jan.16, 2011 @ 4:19pm. She was in the hospital and acquired a septic infection and they didn't catch it in time. She was supposed to get a kidney transplant and had a donor ready to go. I read this poem days after she passed so suddenly and could not see through my tears. My sister was my confidante, best friend, my protector and always on my side. She was a year older than me and used to refer to us all the time as "Irish twins" even though we aren't Irish, :)......It was comforting to read and know that someone else was suffering the EXACT feelings that I had but could not put into words. Its funny I saw a comment on here from a Terri in Massachusetts and my heart jumped, that was my sister's name and she lived there in Massachusetts....I wish it was my sister writing that note cause then she would still be here. Bless you, Belinda!

One night I was holding hand with her in bed watch Glee win national, and as the poem said I found her the next morning and she was already gone. I still live in her house and help take care of my 2 year old nephew and her fiancé and my little sister. Every day I miss her, she was my best friend not only my big sister. There are so many things I wish I could say, or to ask her for when I need advice.

  • On January 13, 2012 my sister passed away. I can't believe it to this day. I will always remember that scary night where my nephew age 12 called my daughter screaming that his mom had a heart attack and was trying to get revived in front of him and his 6 year old sister. It must have been horrible for them. I also remember my little niece holding on to my sister's casket looking in so sad.
    I miss my sister so very much. I sometimes still feel like when the phone rings it will be her. She was everything described in this poem. It is beautiful.
    I do know for everyone out there that there is a Heaven though. The night before my sister died I had a dream with a completely real feel of my sister having lunch with my mom and they told me they were sorry but there was no room at the table for me right now but someday there would be. I had to sit behind a planter to see them on the other side. Then I stepped out of the building at there was the most beautiful brightest light in the sky.

I went to check on her that morning and she wouldn't respond, I know the exact feeling you mention in your poem when you call her name and get no response.

She did not want to die, so it was very hard listening to her want to hold on to life, and knowing she was going to die. Her doctor had just given her a treatment, and she sounded so much stronger that I truly believed she was going to get better. She was my guardian angel, my best girlfriend, my strongest support.

  • I miss my baby sister every day of life since she has left me. She was and is the whole reason I am who and what I have became in my life. I am in nursing school and finishing my dream because of all she has taught me. We were so very close and almost 10 years to the day apart. She had downs syndrome and was in the hospital a lot more than she was home, our mother may had gave birth to her but I was the one that took care of my little perfect baby sister. I miss the nights when she would climb out of her crib and crawl in my bed, for years after she was gone I would not even sleep in a bed anywhere but in a bed. She was 4 years old when she passed and I was 14 end of school looking so very much forward to spending the summer with her....she died on June 5, 1995.....the last day of school for me.

  • My beautiful little sister died June 16th in her sleep. We still don't know why. She seemed perfectly healthy. She was 23. I don't know when, or if, I will ever process this. Somehow it's a comfort knowing I'm not the only one going through this. My mom and other sister were out of town, I was at work. We planned on going to my dad's for a Father's Day grill out and the next day we were going to have a birthday party for my mom. My mom went into her room when she got home, thought she was sleeping and went to kiss her hello. But she was cold.
    Then I got the most horrific, hysterical phone call from my mommy.
    I can't get that call out of my head. Or my sister in her coffin... Or her little voice or her laugh. I keep watching videos and listening to old voicemails. Someone who I loved with all my heart since the day she was born is gone. How will I go on?

  • I lost my sister last year, she was only 20 years old and I was 17. She's my only sister and she passed away so unexpected. I miss her everyday and I know she's a real angel now. I can't wait to see her again.. I'm not afraid to die anymore, because I know she will guide me through it all... Love you my beloved sister and bestfriend Ellane Darantinao..

  • My sister died yesterday around 5:30 in a car accident. She had been drinking a little and didn't wear her seat belt. I am dead too...I just want to be gone. It hurts too bad. She went through so much crap in her life to die so violently and senselessly. She was 23 and has a 2 year old daughter with an ex husband who is trying to make our lives living hell.

  • I lost my sister 9 years ago. We were older than a lot of the people who have talked about their experiences. She was 45 and died so suddenly of a brain hemorrhage. This poem is so lovely and shares the grief felt when we lose our lovely sisters. I will miss Rachel, my best friend forever. We laughed, we cried, best friends were we my sister and me. So sad beyond words.

  • My sister was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 years ago a year later she was diagnosed with lung lymph and bone cancer and given 5 years since then it has gotten worse and have now been told more like months than years. It takes a lot out of me as her little sister I always expected her to be around. Although she is still here now my heart is broken and empty and lost all the things in this poem already mean so much I know that when she is gone this will be the perfect one.xx

  • I cry as I write this. I'm 14 years old and my sister died 3 months ago. She was only 12. My sister was hit by a car when we were walking across the street to go to the mailbox when a truck hit her. He did not mean to hit her she dropped the key to the mailbox and went to go pick it up and got hit. She was my bestest friend my everything but she's in gods arms now. I don't know what I'm going to do with my life without her.

  • It's been less than a month since I lost my sister and my 3 year old nephew (her son). She was my best friend. We both always knew what the other was thinking and I would be over her house all the time. Sometimes we would talk and lose track of time and it would be so late that I just ended up sleeping over- even though I only live 5 min away.
    It is so difficult moving forward. We had so many "traditions" and we would even talk about how when we got old "we would not be boring!" I cry everyday and wonder if it will get any easier.
    Diana (Alvarado)- I read your comment and feel like we have so much in common. People always say "take it one day at a time", but it's like, that's easier said than done!
    Belinda- I love your poem- it is beautiful!!

  • I lost my perfect 17 year old younger sister I loved her so dearly and she loved me so much to. She was nice, kind, thoughtful. Her name was Grace, I understand why that's her name. But the moment I lost her I couldn't help her, because she was suffering from stroke and diabetes she couldn't move she couldn't beneath her last words were help me, oh how it struck me in the heart to know I'd never see her again there's a hole in my heart and she will always be remembered in my heart and my heart always if you're reading this thank you! But you''ll never see me happy again after this and I feel good about sharing this because I know my sister is looking down at me from heaven. I can remember those big beautiful blue eyes and that blonde silky hair of hers. She was the perfect sister to love and always will be. I will always cherish the time I spent with her! Thank you all!

  • My sister recently died in a puddle of blood from a stroke and diabetes :( I know I'll never see or feel that Brother and sister bond. I know I'll never hear her beautiful voice or see her perfect face again. I'll never see those big blue pretty eyes or her blonde silky hair again.

  • Thank you for sharing your poem. I lost my Special Needs sister on August 28,2012 and I still cry at the mention of her name. My husband and I were her caregivers. She woke up at 5 am that day and died at 7:15 am, it was so sudden, we weren't ready, we weren't prepared. I miss her so much, my heart is so broken, oh how I loved her. My Mom passed away 5 months later. I'm so glad I found this website and your poem; I don't feel alone with my grief. My husband and family are great but I know they don't understand how deep the hurt is. I feel like I found another family with this website.

  • My 42 year old sister died on Sept 2, 2013. She was my best friend. I tried to protect her, but realize now, she was much stronger than me...She was a single mother of 3 children, a 2 year old, 5 year old and 15 year old. She was the sole provider. She had a traumatic brain injury but taught herself to read write and became a computer programmer. She wanted to work to support her children, and convinced a doc to perform risky surgery to relieve some of her pain so she could go back to work. She took her prescriptions and died in her sleep. This poem is so relevant. Thank you for writing it, I feel that there are others who share my pain.
