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

© more by Belinda Stotler

Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008 with permission of the Author.

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.

I just read this and bawled my eyes out. I found my baby sister on Mother's Day in the bathtub, dead. This poem was perfect. I was a daddy's girl and was devastated when I lost him, but nothing compares to this. I don't eat or sleep. I work a lot because that is the only time I seem to be able to focus. Now I have to take care of mom, and my sister was so much better than me at doing this because she was so perfect and kind. She never got frustrated like I do. Not so much at mom's actions. I want her to be like she was 10 years ago.

I was told when I was in 2nd grade and she had just started kindergarten that my job was to protect her, and I took that extremely seriously. EVEN into out adult life. Nobody messed with my sis. If I just had one more day with her. I miss everything about her.

I lost my 8-year-old sister on May 29th this year. She was my heart. She was close to everyone in my family. She was healthy. She didn't even feel sick in her 8 years of lifespan, not even a hard fever. One day she was playing with my mom, and she said she was having a headache. She slept. Next day she was still feeling low, so we took her to the hospital. They admitted her and the doctor said she would be fine in 3-4 days, her sugar level was high, it was fluctuating rapidly. One day her heartbeat vanished in the early morning, but it came back after the doctor gave her CPR. She passed away that very same day at 10:30 pm. When I heard the news, my heart sank. I couldn't cry. There were no tears in my eyes. I was sitting beside her the whole night. All the emotions showered on me the next day and are still giving me pain. I miss her so much.

Hang in there, Shubhab. You were there with her when she passed away peacefully. I'm sure your presence gave her comfort. Stay close with your mom and grieve together. More often than not, we hide our pain from each other, but your mom and you need each other's comfort and support to openly show the pain of your grief. Hug and let each other know you are there to cushion the pain. Your sister would want it that way. Take care.

My sister, Brandy Monae Starrett, was 33 years old. She was the prettiest girl in school. She was a year and 8 months older than me, and I grew up in foster care with my big sister Brandy by my side! I have her name in giant big black letters down the right side of my body. I got it when I was 19 because Brandy was my mom to me growing up. I called her mommy until about 8 and then she was my sister. My sister Brandy passed away with her three little girls, 10, 8 and, 7, by her side. She had a heart attack and she lived in Alaska. I live in Cali. We spoke often and she was my everything and them three little girls of hers had to watch their mommy take her last breath. Brandy passed 3/31/21 at 7:30 at at night.
I had a dream with her and I spoke to her as well. She was very surprised to see me and the guests didn't want us near each other. I knew I was not invited. She had a pale face she wiped off too. I don't know what it all means.

I read this submission from my little sister Shannon about the death of Brandy. Like Shannon, I was missing my sister and looking at poems to help bring me some comfort. Brandy was 15 years younger than me, and we were raised apart. Our Dad left behind six children when he passed in 2005, and Brandy and Shannon were the youngest at 19 and 17.

I can't think of any positive things related to my dad's parental influence, except to say that when he passed, all six of us finally were in one room together and we all realized the bonds tying us together and we all truly came together as siblings for the first time. Brandy and Shannon moved to California to be closer to us. Brandy lived with me for over a year, and Shannon moved nearby to live with my brother, Joe. Long story short, my life was blessed with a second chance to really be a big sister, and I am so thankful.

I am CRUSHED that Brandy's time here was cut so short. I hate that her girls lost their mom. I miss her SO much.

Hi Shannon,
I read your submission about Brandy and know how painful it is losing a sibling at such a young age. Time will heal your pain...slowly. Hang in there and know you're not alone.

There was a 2 year difference between me and her. I always wanted to protect her, and when she screamed in pain on the phone lying on that hospital bed and I couldn't do anything, I felt so useless. And when my mom called me and said she passed, my heart sank I hated the world so much. I always joked with my siblings that I would prefer to go first. Now my worst nightmare has come true. I'm paralyzed by fear. My thoughts are bombarded with so many questions. Is she all right? Where is she? Is she smiling the way she used to? My little sister was talkative - is someone telling her to keep quiet. Every part of my body aches when I think about her. I want my thoughts to only give me beautiful memories, but my thoughts are only thinking about what more could I have done to save her.

Tomorrow will be a month since I found my youngest sister and my best friend on her bathroom floor. She had a massive heart attack or aortic aneurysm. She didn't suffer, but I am! You could not have said it any better in your poem! I will post it tomorrow on Facebook. Every time I read it, it makes me cry!!

  • Marti by Marti

This is such a beautiful poem. I can relate to every single line. I lost my sister, Dinorah, 43 days ago. She was only 54 years old. Woke with headache and nausea. She went to the hospital and the doctor thought it was an infection and saw something in her brain. They said she would be okay and they would treat with antibiotics but need more workup. We spoke briefly. The next thing I knew, she was in emergency brain surgery. She had a ruptured aneurysm and never came out of it. She lit up a room every time she walked in. She was always smiling, giving, kind, and loving. We were especially close. We were best friends and had an unbreakable bond. I miss her so much. Every day I cry. I feel confused and still can’t wrap my mind around her. I miss her voice and her smile. I miss us seeing each other, doing stuff together, or just cooking and watching TV, listening to music, dancing. I feel such a pain in my heart, such a sadness in my soul. Oh, how I wish she were here…I feel so lost without her.

  • Deborah M. Figueira by Deborah M. Figueira, Toronto
  • 2 years ago

Hi Marti,
The hardest part for the ones left behind is living. The pain never goes away, especially if you never got to say goodbye for whatever reasons. It just gets tolerable. Know that your pain is common and even though that is no consolation, take comfort in the gift of having known her for however short a time that was and what a gift it was having known her. Stay strong.

My sister, Kimber Wehr, died on 11/08/18 during the Camp Fire in Paradise. She was 53 and was getting really close to my mom in the end. She helped a lot of people in her life, and that's what I remember best about her. We were in the same grade (she skipped a year) and we one year one month and eight days apart. As her older brother, this poem touched me, too.

  • Deborah M. Figueira by Deborah M. Figueira, Toronto
  • 5 years ago

My sister died in the early morning the day after a long weekend. Alone and more than likely scared because no one was around, so I never got to say goodbye. I often wonder if there were any last words she wanted to tell me. Knowing her, there probably were. It's been almost eight years since, but the tear in my heart is not healed. She was so awesome and I miss her so...every day. She truly was my best friend and a second mother to my daughter. She was generous and would give, even if it left her without. She was loving, caring, and kind, and many people liked being around her. She was my mother's favorite and I know why.

  • Carlisha Williams by Carlisha Williams
  • 5 years ago

Hi, my name is Carlisha Williams and I'm 16 years old. My little sister passed away 1 year and a half ago. I got into a car accident on April 27, 2018. It was me, my father, and my three little sisters. Two of my sisters were in critical condition, and the other one passed away. Her name was Charity Bishop. She was a beautiful, goofy, and bright little 7 year old. It pains me every day not to wake her up in the morning to get ready and go to school. It pains me that she didn't start third grade this year. It's been tough dealing with helping my mother take care of my sisters in the hospital. It pained me to hide the fact that I had to lie to my other sister, Christian who is 10, that our sister was doing well and recovering. Today is April 10, 2019, and on the 27th it marks her 1 year death anniversary. I'm doing an English project, and we have to look up published poems about a theme we chose. I chose despondency, so I had to find some deep and sad poems based on my experiences.

  • Deborah M. Figueira by Deborah M. Figueira, Toronto
  • 5 years ago

I know it's difficult to imagine that time can ease your pain and loss, but it can and will. Fill the hole in your heart with love for your sister. If she could, she would reach out and comfort you, but she can't. Her time here is done. She has accomplished what she came here to do and has now moved on to the next phase. We must continue on and just like the loved ones many of us have lost, do what we need to do until it's our time to enter into the next chapter of our existence. She is fine. Be good to yourself and you will be too.

I am so sorry for the sudden loss of your little sister. Grief can overwhelm anyone, regardless of your age. My sister was 50 years old when she suddenly died, and it was a heartbreak I'd never felt. I read lots of articles on coping with grief to help me, plus a book I'd recommend entitled, "I Wasn't Ready to Say Goodbye: Surviving, Coping and Healing After the Sudden Death of a Loved One" (by Brook Noel). Talk about your grief, write a journal of how you feel and memories of your sister. I poured my grief into a journal to help get it out of my mind. Reading back that journal helped me realize my sister is part of who I am, and how much she loved me and would be sad knowing her death was breaking my heart. I have never written a poem until Brenda's death. The idea to write "Missing My Sister" and the words for it came from my journal. It's hard to find the words to express grief's deep pain or to share it. I am glad I shared my poem, because the comments have helped me and others.

Someone I thought of as a sister and have been around since we were both 2 passed away December 14, 2018, and every day it hurts. She was in the back seat of a car with her friends. The 18-year-old driver was speeding and hit a patch of black ice. She didn't make it out. The other two in the back did, but they were severely injured.

  • Clarissa Legg by Clarissa Legg
  • 5 years ago

I am amazed at how practically every word of this poem is exactly the things I have felt and thought. I lost my sister very suddenly on August 14th, 2018. The pain is still as fresh today as it was the day I received the call that she had passed. It's a tough thing when you lose your sister and best friend of 40+ years all in one heartbreaking swoop. I have moments where the grief feels like it is too painful for me to bear and that it is going to swallow me whole. For now, it feels as though time will never heal this wound, but I keep praying that God will guide me down this road I do not want to be on. My heart goes out to the author of this poem and to everyone who has left a comment because I, unfortunately, am all too aware of your pain and sorrow.

  • Nina C Browning by Nina C Browning

This poem is special to me. I had two sisters, Mari and Mette. They were identical twins, only a year younger than me. They sadly both passed away in 2015, within seven months of each other. First Mari died one morning of a sudden heart attack, followed by Mette, who died seven months later of Malignant Melanoma cancer. Mette was only diagnosed with cancer two months after losing her beloved twin. She was understandably totally devastated and heartbroken when she lost her true twin soul. We all were. Mette chose this poem to be read out at Mari's funeral. The poem said it all. Little did we know that Mette would follow Mari "to the other shore" within seven months. They were 51 when they died. Losing his beloved twin daughters made our dear dad have a total breakdown, and he followed them nine months later. I often go back and read this poem. It's comforting to think that they were waiting for each other on the other shore. May they rest in peace. Thank you.

My lovely sis and I were very close. We called each other, talked, and laughed about the silliest things. We had so many plans in front of us, and my sister loved to travel the world. It has been 1 month and 22 days now that my sister has not been with me anymore. She was fine and then went to the hospital because of stomach pain. They said she needed an operation. She was supposed to be fine and out of the hospital in 6 days but she got an infection from the operation. They had to operate again to fix it. My losing sister was only 40 when she passed away. Everything happened in only 30 days. I was holding her hand and praying that she’d recover soon. But it did not happen. My heart is so broken. The reason I’m sharing this so people know to get an opinion from a different doctor and a different hospital before you decide anything.

I lost my sister a month ago. She was only 14. She had a failed heart surgery. We never thought she would pass away, because the operation was highly successful, but things weren't in our favor. She was my best friend and my partner in crime, and I feel soo alone. Everything has changed ever since she's been gone, but I know she's in a better place and much happier. Hopefully we'll meet in heaven.

I'm the youngest of 3 girls. My father was murdered when I was 18 months old So sad for him, but my Mum is left with the devastating memory of this tragic event. Growing up without a father was normal to me, but I lost my best friend and middle sister 11 years ago. That hurt so much. My oldest sister is here, but we don't have the same connection. I'm way older than you, but I understand the heartache. Be strong. Live life to the fullest for your sister! Take care!

  • Kartina Wong by Kartina Wong

I lost my sis 3 years, 2 months, and 6 days ago. I was lost, confused, and devastated. I could not cry, but I wanted to scream. Grief turned to anger...isolation to depression. I gave up hobbies and almost life. I am a changed person altogether...argumentative and negative, always judgmental and paranoid. I feel my soul is either here or dead. I'm wishing to see and be with her. I miss her so much. What I wrote was 90 percent of how I feel every day, but that little bit that is left tells me to live and move on, even if so terribly wounded because other loved ones depend on us to live their lives, and we don't want them to suffer. I know my sis would have done the same thing and would also have suffered this much.

  • Ivonne Ramos by Ivonne Ramos

I lost my sister 15 months ago on 6/9/16 after a very short battle of lymphoma cancer. Her battle was 72 days after being diagnosed. Fourteen of those days were in hospice care. I held her hand every day and night. I did not dare leave her sight. I prayed with her, talked about our childhood memories, and sang to her. I laughed, cried, and pleaded, until one night I took a walk around the hospital halls and sat for a second in the guest area and shut my eyes. Then I felt a light tap on my shoulder and a soft whisper from my aunt, "Wake up, wake up, her time has come." As I opened my eyes all confused, hoping it was all a nightmare, my aunt stretched out her hand and whispered, "I shall walk next to you and take you to your sister." My longest walk ever, and even though I knew this day would come, I couldn't help myself from weeping. I kiss her forehead and whisper, "My forever sister, until we meet again."

  • 6 years ago

Three months and three days later my sister went to meet Jesus face to face. It has absolutely been rough, hard, and difficult. It’s next to impossible to just function, wake up, open curtains, parent, work, and live.

God has been my comfort. The pain is not quite as acute as just 12, 14 months ago, but it’s constant. If I had the energy to cry more, I would. On long drives, I do. I know in a couple years it will likely be a little easier, but for now I want to be with her, hug her, and watch her interact with her kids and mine. That is not going to be possible on planet Earth again, and that is just about too much for my broken, bleeding heart. She was well one day, but a week later without a heart beat. On good days I get out there and try to live stronger…for her.

Thank you for the poem. It came back up in my memories from a year ago that I lost my sister August 31, 2016. I still grieve for her every day. She fought kidney failure for 10 years. I saw her suffer so much. I know that she is at peace now, but I miss her so much and wonder if the pain will every go away.

I lost my sister about 6 months ago, unexpectedly. She was only 37. She had a pulmonary embolism and didn't even make it to the hospital. Your poem was everything I wanted to say to her and more. Thank you. My heart is so broken. Every day is a struggle. I want to pick up the phone and talk to her so badly.

  • Kate Loss by Kate Loss
  • 6 years ago

Jennifer, you are not alone. I, too, feel your pain and deep sorrow. I lost my younger sister on 7-7-17 from multiple pulmonary embolisms. She, too, was 37. To say I'm heart-broken and crushed is not even close of how I feel after losing my best friend in the world. We were very close, and now I feel as if a huge chunk of my heart is gone. Take one day at a time, and I wish you strength and peace moving forward in your life.

Sorry to hear. The same exact thing happened in my life. My sister, 28, died the same exact way. My little sister. My whole world has changed since February 23, 2017, and I feel lost and alone and like certain people expect me to just get over it. My condolences to you.

  • Mapholoba by Mapholoba
  • 7 years ago

This poem reminds me of my big sis. She passed away in 2007 when she was 19 years. We were so close. What hurts me the most is that she didn't even get a chance to say goodbye. She was sick almost a year, but we thought she would recover. Before she passed away she told my Aunt and my mom to look after me when she was gone because she saw that her days were numbered *crying*. When I woke up preparing to go to school, Dad received a call from the hospital telling him that she passed away. I couldn't go to school. I cried the whole day and even today I still cry. I feel like my other part of me is missing. Hope she rest in perfect peace. We will always love and miss her dearly.

I cannot begin to express how each word of this poem resonates with me. I lost my baby sister; she was only 22, exactly 3 months ago, and every second of every day my heart is constantly breaking thinking of her - my best friend, my everything. This poem is beautiful.

  • Samantha Saldana by Samantha Saldana
  • 7 years ago

This poem touched me in so many ways. When my baby sister passed away Monday 3-27-17, I read this at her funeral. My sister never made friends. I love her and miss her so much. Even typing this is so hard because it is still so fresh. I reread this every chance I get when I start missing her. It may sound silly, but it helps. Rest easy, baby girl. You will never be forgotten.

  • Colin Gordon by Colin Gordon
  • 7 years ago

It’s been two months and two days since my older sister, Marlene, passed. I miss her so much it's hard to put into words. So many bad things happened to her in life. Sometimes the only comfort I have is in the fact that she will never be harmed again. She was raped at least three times by three different men. Only one was convicted. She turned to alcohol to kill her pain and ruined her pancreas and her liver in the process. She hit her head in her boyfriend’s tub, and the surgeons couldn't save her because her blood was too thin and clotting agents weren't working. She is gone, but I do have memories I will forever cherish. When we were little she would read to me and make up funny voices for all the different characters. I remember her teaching me how to tie my shoelaces. I always looked to her for advice and answers, especially after my mom went to work to support the family. She was only two years older than me, but it felt like she knew everything. This poem is powerful. Thanks for sharing.

  • Christine Zimmerman by Christine Zimmerman
  • 7 years ago

Thank you for writing this poem. It helps me deal with the grief of losing a younger sister who died on November 4, 2016, just 3 days after being diagnosed with APL. She was in intensive care on what I thought was a road to recovery when she had respiratory distress and cardiac arrest. Her death was so sudden that we did not have a chance to say goodbye. I carried her ashes halfway around the world to be buried in our hometown, and there she lies at peace. I will always grieve and remember her, and I hope the pain goes away eventually. Thank you for your thoughts in this poem, and I can say I know exactly how you feel. I believe she is in a better place and I know my sadness will dissipate also, but it just takes time.

I lost a sister in February of last year. Her one year anniversary is on the 27th of this month, and I can tell you it's not easy. Every single day I live with the memory of the last 48 hours I spent with her in the hospital. It's like a film being played over and over in my head. Wish it didn't have to be this way. I miss and love you, sis.

It's very hard to deal with the pain of losing your reflection. I lost her 4 months back. She was in ICU for 7 days and on a ventilator for 3 days, diagnosed with sinus vein thrombosis. Last time she spoke to me she asked me to come visit her and bring juice and foods as she was not allowed to eat or drink anything from mouth. She was waiting for me, and by the time I reached her place, she had gone into a coma. Regret, pain, sorrows, and tears are that only things that keeps me busy. I still expect to be together with her someday, sometime...

I couldn’t gather the strength to say a word in the last 3 days. She was on the hospital bed, in the Critical Care Unit, and I thought she would be back soon. I was wrong to think that things never go worse for people like us, like her. Five days ago, at a family get-together, we sat for a hearty meal at a restaurant. She complained of uneasiness and stomach pain after returning home. We called it 'not serious' after the doctor pointed to food poisoning (for the worst). He prescribed some peculiar tablet drug which we couldn't find at any drugstore. On the doctor's advice, she was given an injection, by him, to relieve pain. The last time she was conscious was her first minutes at the home before she fainted to high fever and shivers. We rushed her to the hospital, which deemed her condition serious. Thereon, for better medical care she was referred to two hospitals. It all happened within hours; from laughter to the life support, my 21 year old sister's feeble, last breaths echo within. :'(

November 23rd will make 5 years that my best friend/sister was called home. That Wednesday will forever be burned in my memory. She came home for Thanksgiving the day before. I remember talking with her the night before we made plans to see each other after I got off from work and we said, "I love you, see you tomorrow." How was I to know there would be no tomorrow? My poor Mom found my sister dead. The day my sister died was the beginning of the end for my Mom (Mama died 3 years later). My heart will forever be broken! Thank you for writing your poem. It reminded me so much of my sister (Dale Lynn Strange).

I lost my sister in 2003. I spoke to her the previous night and she said to me, “Sissy, please come fetch me. I want to stay with you.” She was too weak to travel by car or flight, so I lied to her and said I would come fetch her on month’s end. At 11:00 the following day I received a call from my youngest sister saying she passed away. To this day I still miss her a lot. I visit her grave as much as I can.

My sister died close to three months ago at the very young age of 45 of cystic fibrosis. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her or miss her terribly!
She suffered a lot during the course of this disease.
We were very close but lived in different states; but I saw her
whenever I could. She was a beautiful woman inside & out & a very spiritual person.
I talk to her & tell her how much I love & miss her every day! I could only hope when my time comes that I go to heaven & see her again.

I have a sister who passed away, she was very young and she didn't deserve what she went through. She stopped breathing, my sister couldn't breath. She was on life support and it was turned off. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of my best friend, and sometimes I don't know if I can go on without her! If you to have lost a sister, I find a nice way to feel close with them is to write a letter or draw a picture, file it and date it. Keep this book in a safe spot and whenever you are feeling down read through it and know you are close with your sister, closer than you have ever been! Any comments please let me know and any questions please do ask! Stay Strong Lovelies 

I recently loss my younger sister. It has been extremely emotional and difficult to frame my words; the grief, hurt, pain, and emptiness. This poem touched my spirit. My mom and I found my sister unconscious and non responsive. The feelings of helplessness were so overwhelming, she transitioned like vapor. We were unable to say goodbye, it happened so fast. Just the night before, we bonded as we usually did. She was an awesome friend, sister, confidant, and God Mom to my son... The only Aunt he has ever known. People always joked about how close the four of us were (Mom, Sis, my son, and myself), but that is what makes it most difficult. We lost a piece of ourselves. This poem lifted my spirits, so glad I stumbled upon it.

I keep coming back to this poem. It touched me deeply.
Nicole, Casey, Coleen and all, I'm so sorry for your losses! I know that pain.
My sister passed away a year and a half ago. She was young, healthy , happy and full of life and energy. She went in for a minor procedure and developed sepsis. Yes sepsis! I still can't believe it :'( She's my only sister, she's like my second mom! and my best friend!
I thought the pain would lessen and I will comprehend what happened but it gets harder.
She didn't deserve to die! She was the most loving and happy person I've known! She loved life.
What hurts the most is seeing how much my parents and her kids miss her and NEED her! I'm there for them everyday, but no one can replace her. They break my heart! My sister was an exceptional mother and daughter, she dedicated her life to her kids and was the most caring, loving and generous person.
'Be strong', people tell me; 'all those around you need to lean on you', they say. I try , I really try, and I put on the happy mask everyday showing my strength but I'm dying from the inside. I miss her terribly and it really hurts so much.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of my dear sister. My heart aches. I feel that it's a nightmare and I will soon wake up and she will be right there , she will take me in her arms like she used to with the loving warm smile on her face and tell me that we are ok.

My sister Diane went home to be with the lord on July 28 and it been the hardest four months of my life. The pain will always be there and there's will always be a hole in my heart where you should be. My sister died of heart failure she leaves behind six kids and they miss their mom daily. We all have to live with this pain but I know that she's in a better place I just pray sometimes that we had more time with her, she fought a good fight and she was only 34, a young beautiful woman whom I love and miss so much. There's not a day that goes by where I don't think of her. I still cry. Gone but never forgotten.

My sister died 4 years ago at the young age of 24. She had a blood clot in her lung we were not aware of. Her 4 year old daughter was in bed with her when she was found by our mother. There is not a day that goes on that I don't think of her.

I just lost my sister 08/19/2014. My worst nightmare came true that morning. My biggest fear became a reality, my mom and I went into Rosie's room and found her sleeping, so we thought. We called her name but no response, my mom started to cry as I called 911. They told me my sister had gone peacefully in her sleep. She had been fighting lupus for just over a year. My Heart is hurting not having her near. SISTER I MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU SO MUCH ROSIE, AND I ALWAYS WILL!!!

Writing this through tears. I can relate to this poem sooo soo much. My older sister passed away 2 weeks back. She was perfectly fine. We never knew what happened to her, just a sudden death. We found her dead on her bed. She slept and never woke up again. her room is across from mine, I have to look at her room every single time I go out/enter my room. it's still soo hard to believe she's gone forever and we won't see her again.

we miss you, my beloved sister

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.

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 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.

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!

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!

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.

I'm so sorry for your loss. My sister passed away when she was 13 and I was 10 in a freak golf cart accident. There's not a day that goes by that I don't miss her and think about her and I'm now 28 years old. Your sister is with you every day and is watching over you. I know it's so hard and feels like a bad dream but you'll get stronger and live for her. I talk to my sister everyday and pray to her. I know there's nothing I can say to make the hurt and pain go away but just know she's in heaven in a beautiful happy place watching over.

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.

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

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.

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 oldest sister last year in 2012. The year before, I also lost my Mother in 2011. I miss her so much and your poem made me cry so much I could hardly read it. I think of all the times we shared together throughout the years. My older sister always told me she loved me. I miss her calling me on the phone saying I love you. I have never lost a sibling before so this was a shock. Your poem says everything I would have liked to say about my sister. Thank you so much for your beautiful words..

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. I miss you so very much

I want you to know - I have been to Heaven - it's real - it is the only thing that gives me solace now that my mom and my sister died. My mom died in my arms just after her 55th B-day. Heaven is love times a million - it was so beautiful I can't wait to go there - I can't wait to see them.

I talked to her after I gave birth, she was so excited to meet her. Less then 24 hours later, someone killed and murdered her and my two nephews. I died that day and never got over losing my sister like that, and my baby girl is a consistent reminder. This poem touches my heart and the heart of my mother's a little harder than most.

I lost my sister two days ago. She suffered for most of her life with Myasthenia Gravis. 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 love you Tammi, I always will. I know that you are not suffering anymore physically and you are up in the stars as you hoped you would be.

I lost my sissy 2 years ago, at her young age of 21. 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. I too at one point felt selfish for wanting her back rather than being happy that she is in a better place. Little by little I am learning to live my day without her here. Thank You for this poem! And I am sorry for your loss.
But now we only live knowing that one day we will be back together. Once again, Thank you... you don't know how much this poem has helped me.

This poem is my story and I am glad I found it to know that I am not alone in my thoughts. So many of us miss our loved ones greatly and we can feel alone in our grief, but this poem that so touched me made me realize that I am not alone and it is OK to still miss her horribly and mourn every once in a while.

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.

My name is Julia, I'm 22 and I just lost my sister on May 18th suddenly with no warning. 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. This poem made me cry so hard, but this is exactly how I feel almost everyday. 6 days after she passed I had her name tattooed on me. I'll miss you forever Jenni <3

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!

truly g8. Very heart rendering.
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.

Love you a lot and miss you forever

I couldn't find words to express how much it hurt and what I felt like, but this poem did, Tisa was is and always will be my best friend for life. She hangs right above my bed every night. She was only 19 and I'm only 16. I lost her in an car accident, she swerved to save her sister's life but Tisa ended up dying.

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 just didn't know it.

I recently lost my sister due to a ruptured brain aneurysm. I stumbled across your poem and cried, because it express exactly what I was feeling. The day of her funeral I read this poem and it still makes me cry. Thank you for helping me express my feelings about her. She was only 39 and left behind 3 young children and a husband and lots of family. Thank you again.

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

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...

Dear Belinda,
I want to thank you for writing and sharing your poem it was so beautiful and touched my heart as I too lost my beautiful little sister Amy to breast cancer on March 16th, 2012. My heart is broken and will never be the same, I do not know how to live my life without her in it and I ask God to help me thru this heart ache and pain (as well as her husband and son) she was so beautiful inside and out with the most kind and loving heart, and always a big smile no matter what... not a day or hour goes by that I don't think of her, I will always love my sister with all of my heart and soul. God came and brought her home to Heaven and I know we will all be together again someday. My Heart goes out to u Belinda for the loss of your beautiful sister. God Bless. I hope you don't mind if I share your beautiful words on my Facebook page and Author being your name. Our sisters would be proud for sharing such beautiful words. Thank you, Debbie

  • Sarah by Sarah, Quesnel BECAUSE
  • 12 years ago

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 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.

This poem is beautiful, I lost my sister suddenly 8 months ago and to this day still have no actual facts of what happened. She was 19 years old and was due to celebrate her 20th 9 days after her death, I don't really know how to feel at the moment and I sometimes feel like I'm the only one but I'm not and seeing all these comments has shown me that. I'm only 17 life's soo cruel she was my BEST FRIEND.... RIP SAM <3 6/6/2011 XX

I so love this poem. 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. I wish I can turn time back to have her 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.

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 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.

She is in my heart always and forever. Thank you so much for this very sweet poem. God Bless You.

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 just lost my best friend almost 2 years ago to epilepsy, and she was 28 and we had been friends since middle school and I'm missing my friend its as if there is a huge hole in my heart and that the sorrow I feel will never leave, but I take comfort in knowing she won't be in any more suffering .

  • Modesto by Modesto, CA
  • 12 years ago

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.)

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...

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 reads my heart and my soul. The pain of loosing my older sister was to much for me to handle and be able to write what I feel.

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.

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.

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 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 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.

I lost my sister November 01,2010 from lung cancer. This is a beautiful poem. So much of it reminds me of her and my relationship. I miss her so much. Thank you for sharing this poem.

I lost my junior after child birth on 9 Nov, 2010. She was so loving, generous and loved by everybody she ever came close to. We all loved her in the family and she was too quiet, always avoiding trouble. I loved her so much. The memory of her will not leave me but I know that God will surely give me and my family peace even with flash back. Thank you.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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. I know God will look after her, I will never forget you big sis love you always xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

My sister died two years ago.. She was 13 I was 10 I reallllly miss her very much. I think about her daily. Its so confusing because I still don't understand what happened some people say suicide drug overdose but, I could never believe that EVER but, when they did the thing they found she had a heart problem now I'm scared because we both had asthma..

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..

As I read this poem I couldn't help but cry. I recently lost my little sister to suicide at the age of 25. She left behind 3 beautiful children all under the age of 6. This poem says everything about her, even her eye color. Thank you for writing this poem. I was having a hard time finding the words to write a memorial poem for her scrapbook I'm making for her.

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.

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 feel for you. My sister died of cancer back in September. She was only my sister of love. not blood. I loved her just the same. It's not fair.

I lost my sister July 2009 and your poem expressed so much of what I am feeling. She was not only my sister but my best friend and her death has left a gaping hole. It's hard to imagine life without her...she is in my mind and heart every moment of everyday.
Thank you for your touching and beautiful poem Belinda...I know what you are going through and it's rough but my only consolation is that one day we will meet again on the other side. This I truly believe.

I cry as I write this. My older sister died Thursday, April 8, 2010. I'm still trying to figure everything out...trying to make sense of it all. Thank you so much for sharing your poem with the world and especially with others who are grieving the loss of a sister. I can't quite put into words how I feel about her and the loss of her, but you did it so eloquently in this poem. The emotions are still so raw.

You poem touched me deeply. I can feel your pain. I send my warm loving vibes of familiarity to you. "I look at your smiling face in all my photos" I still struggle with this and my Mother still cant have any pics of my sister out. Next month will be 3 years since I lost my younger sister she was 25.

Its been 24 years since my 14 year old baby sister was murdered, the murderer was arrested just 6 months ago, while reading your poem through tears it brought a warmth and the words I couldn't find.
Thank you. Your sister would be very proud.

I lost my sister in-law on 16/08/09, and the poem is so lovely. I am sure to send a copy of this poem to her sister, who still cries everytime I see her. Does it ever get better? She was still so young and it came without warning

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
