Sister Death Poems

Loss of Sister Poems

Sisters can be annoying pests who hog the bathroom and borrow your clothes without asking but admittedly, they are always there for you when times get tough and usually, they are your best friends. Sisters are always ready to love, comfort, and defend you. They are lifelong friends you can count on until the end. In fact, the only force powerful enough to cut short the friendship between a sister and her siblings is death. The loss of such a special relative can be particularly painful, but holding dear all of the precious memories you shared will help you to cope.

She was beautiful, like a little girl's doll.
She was older than I, but so quiet and weak,
