You left without
Gone so fast.
Now all we have
Siblings that pass away have special meaning to us. They are often close in age to us and their death may bring to mind our own mortality. Life is no longer taken for granted. Someone from our generation has passed away. If the death is unexpected, there may be loose ends in the relationship that have not been dealt with. It is common that a death of a sibling brings upon a search for meaning. We may ask ourselves if we are accomplishing the goals that we have set for ourselves.

Day by day, I think of you.
How can all of this be true?
I can't believe you're really gone;
I still can't accept it,

My other half of me just disappeared.
Darkness came as fast as you got your angel wings.

But you forgot to teach me one last thing -
How to let you go.
