Sister Poem

I dedicate this poem to my sister!

Letting You Go

© Ivanna M. Torres
I know I have to face the day when my mornings will not be as sweet
when I値l wake up and feel like something is missing and nothing is there
when you will be waking up next to someone else who isn稚 me
every day I fear this morning is getting closer

every night I fall asleep
I sleep in hopes of dreaming
that everything would be like it was before
but I can't get that chance because reality will not leave me alone

I will always have to confess one thing
nothing scares me more than loosing the person that I have always had by my side
at nights I値l feel so alone and lost without you
and maybe you'll be lonesome too

I know I知 being selfish for wanting something I can稚 have for ever
but I will always feel in my heart and in my soul
that you belong to me
no matter the distance no matter the place no mater the time

my mornings are getting colder
my nights are getting wrestles
I will never stop thinking about the day I値l have to say it
the day I値l have to say goodbye

that day is getting closer ...
the day I致e been wishing for never to come
the day of your departure
I値l watch helpless as you turn around to leave
a part of me will die the day I'll let you go.

  • 3 years in a row I have had to move schools because of different foster placements. And the people I met during those years touched me and I grew magnificent bonds with them. Letting them slip past me and having to say good bye to them was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. The saddest thing is I have just done it again 3 days ago

  • Amazing Poem!
    I love it! It sounds just like me and my sister!
    her boyfriend is going to propose any day and I'm really scared, for the day I have to see her go! I love her, and don't want her to leave me!!!!

  • I met someone whom I really admired, and I loved her like my own older sister already. We were close before but now for some reasons she has changed. Love this poem so much, it really describes my relationship with her. Thanks for the poem.
