Sister Death Poem

Dealing With Death Years Later

It has been 4 years since we lost my sister suddenly to heart failure. I didn't know just how hard life would still be years later. I find myself caught up in crying sessions driving down the road or looking through old pictures or thinking about everyone who is feeling exactly like I am who loved her too! Death takes our loved ones, but it takes a little of us too. I am eternally thankful for the 34 years I did have with this amazing woman!

Pieces Forever Missing

Four years have now passed,
my heart's still not whole.
Pieces forever missing,
with your death, they were stolen.

The beginning proved the toughest.
Depression sunk in hard.
Just went through the motions,
yet eternally to be scarred.

Reminded through your pictures
of the life that you once knew.
Your smile ever so captivating,
those eyes of ocean blue.

Your presence is a constant,
felt in the sunrise and sunset.
Shooting stars, heart shaped rocks,
YOU... I am never to forget.

Your memory will be everlasting.
Still your voice I miss the most.
Oh, just to hear you laughing
or just to feel you close.

Four years now have passed.
No, my heart's still not whole.
Yes, pieces forever will be missing,
but your changed my soul.
