R.I.P Sarah


Published by Family Friend Poems January 2008 with permission of the author.

God picks flowers from his garden above.
He sends them to earth for a family to love.
One cool crisp morning he sent twins.
The family burst with love from within.
They grew into beautiful young girls with spunk
Always happy and being little skunks.
Then one day the sky turned gray.
Everyone in the county began to pray.
An accident took one twin away,
Leaving behind a family in dismay.
Sometimes we don't always understand
Just what God has in his plans.
Remember Sarah as your life goes on
Because her life is now heaven's home
Where sorrow or pain shall be no more,
Only peace and eternity on every shore.
Let not your hearts be troubled.
Remember how her soul always bubbled.
Put your trust in God and your soul at rest,
And remember God took Sarah because
He only takes the very best!

My sister's condition had me begging for a miracle. After an hour or two of arriving, the doc and nurse came in and informed us it was time. Together as a family, we said our last goodbyes. Her body was starting to turn blue and stiff. It's an image that haunts me, but I stayed. I was able to say I love you, how grateful and lucky I am to have been your twin. It was a very painful sight. I couldn't leave l her room.
You mentioned being severely depressed and feeling as if you cannot be happy again. I understand that, completely. I felt the same until a couple of weeks ago when I came across this saying. "Once one decides to pass, they experience no more guilt, regret, worry, angry, or loneliness - just peace." My twin struggled with happiness and often felt lonely. Knowing she cannot experience a negative emotion again puts my heart at ease. I know everyone grieves differently, and it has no expiration date, so continue to grieve the way that works for you, but do not give up.

I lost my twin sister five days before our 13th birthday. She had cancer and had been sick and suffering for a long time. I woke up and she was lying dead next to me. This happened 43 years ago, but I miss her every day.

Hi, I am Bessie Alexander. My twin sister Jesse just died February 11, 2017. I don't know what I'm doing with my life. I don't know how to cope. I cry every day. I can't feel her anymore. I can't sense her. Everything's just a jumble, and I see you ladies are kind of going through the same thing and it's been years down the road, so somebody could just help me with some coping. I'd greatly appreciate it.

My fraternal twin sister Stacey died recently on April 11, 2020, of septic shock and pulmonary edema. I believe is what they called it. She had her organs shut down, a lot of clots in her heart and lung. She was on 24/7 dialysis, but she had excessive fluid throughout her body. Her heart was too weak, and I had to say goodbye. She was 44. Our 45th birthday was a month later. I cry every day. I am severely depressed and unable to be happy here on earth without her. I have a 10-year-old son, but I still am so low in my life. My entire life is shattered. We were close. We worked together and talked and text regularly. I have a hole in my heart. Life is horrible without her. I have never been so unhappy. I lost my boyfriend about 2 and half months before she passed. I am overwhelmed coping with two deaths. I feel myself crying every day.

I don't know how to help you. Our names are Sherri and Terri. We are 5 minutes apart. D-Day was March 21, 2017. We lived right across the street from each other. I had her for 56 years. I don't know how to go on without her in my life, and I don't want to. I can't quit thinking about my 'lil sister. That's all I have to say.

I lost my twin sister last year, the day before our birthday. It has been hard. I don't know how long I will be able to disconnect myself from grieving her death. I'm very angry with her for leaving me. She had a drug problem and she left a hole inside of me.

Hello, I am sorry for your loss. My identical twin sister's funeral was Feb 3, 2016. Diana had a grand mal seizure. She suffocated in her pillow. She passed away suddenly in her sleep on Jan 28, 2016. I never got to see her, the autopsy was too bad. Life has never been the same since. My heart is shattered and broken into a million pieces. I cry every day and miss her so much. It is unbearable.

This story is so touching. It's the same life me and my twin sister are living. We live and work together. She works in the kitchen and I work in housekeeping. I could not imagine life without her. Praying for your strength.

Hi my name is Cindy. I lost my twin sister in a car accident of this year. It is so hard to be here without her we lived together and worked together I never went back to work I could not. It was funny when we went to work she was a housekeeper and I worked in the kitchen a lot of times when they said hi they would call me Carrie but I would never say no I am Cindy and the same thing would happen to Carrie.

This is beautiful. I lost my twin sister, too. She died in December 2004 at the age of 15. It is really hard to cope with it.
take care. Lena

This poem meant so much to me. I have had a best friend since we were both 3 years old. We never agreed on anything but we were like sisters still. Two months ago she died in a car wreck. Reading this I feel like I can relate. Thank you! Your poem really helped me!!! :)
