A Sister's Love

©

Published: February 2006

As I visit my sisters grave, no flowers anywhere I said no, this cannot be, She loved her flowers endlessly. I stood there as a dove flew by And sat on the gravestone as I cried. Oh yes I know you are here, you followed your husband everywhere. and when he went to god above, I cannot bare this painful loss without my love too great a cost. I watched her change from light to dark, no more laughter no more sparks. ha sis I heard her say, the cancer took her far away, to the master up above, now she's there with her great love. as I put blue flowers on their grave, I love you both and miss you so, the time was gone I had to go. in my dreams I was awakened, by a voice I knew had spoken. Phyll I'm here, I heard her say, thanks for the visit you made today. I'll always be beside you, thanks for the flowers of blue. and as I carried on the day, I saw a dove fly my way.

This poem has touched me very much. My uncle died 3 weeks ago, the first week was very hard and painful, but I'm scared for my grandmother and my uncle's wife. I pray to God that he will give us the strength to get by the death of my uncle. he was the greatest uncle I have ever had and we may be apart in distance but never in the heart or the mind.
