Sister Death Poems
Loss of Sister Poems
Sisters can be annoying pests who hog the bathroom and borrow your clothes without asking but admittedly, they are always there for you when times get tough and usually, they are your best friends. Sisters are always ready to love, comfort, and defend you. They are lifelong friends you can count on until the end. In fact, the only force powerful enough to cut short the friendship between a sister and her siblings is death. The loss of such a special relative can be particularly painful, but holding dear all of the precious memories you shared will help you to cope.
30 Poems About The Death Of A Sister
The Love I Have For My Sister
Often, when it's late at night
And no one's 'round but me,
My mind will travel back in time
To my sister's memory.
So many scenes will fill my head.
It's hard to keep them sorted.
All our laughter, talks and games
Through life have been aborted.
But my mind keeps you alive,
Though memories all it shows.
Still, I need to talk to you,
My questions to propose.
Are you happy where you are?
Are Mom and Dad around?
Can you see the thoughts I have
Or words I've written down?
Are you warm in winter time
And cool in summer's sun?
Has the pain that sent you there
Been mercifully undone?
Do you and Mom and Dad play cards
Or talk throughout the night?
Do you still have the forest walks
You loved with pure delight?
Do you still have the laugh you had
When I'd say funny things?
So much of you I'll never know,
Unless I had some wings!
It's been so long since you've been gone,
And still, it's hard to cope.
I want to get to where you are.
Could you throw me a rope?
Is Jacob's Ladder still around,
Available to rent?
If you could send it down to me,
That would be heaven-sent!
A rocket ship or "beam me up,"
A sling shot or a jet!
All might help me get to you.
I would have no regret!
I guess that I am stuck down here
Until I pass away.
I hope you're there to take my hand
When time is up that day.
Then we can talk and laugh again,
Play games without a care!
One more question, then I'll go.
Will you be there?Latest Shared Story

Proud To Call You My Sister
Like twins, I feel I'm one of two.
Struggling here sister without you.
Why, oh why did you have to go?
My heart is sore and it pains me so.
Others didn't really understand.
Ours was truly an intricate bond.
We've had harsh words and stupid fights,
But there was no denying we were pretty tight.
You stood me high upon a pedestal,
And I felt your love till the very end.
You were proud to call me sister
And prouder still to call me friend.
Through all the years, the smiles and tears,
For all those times you showed you cared.
For being at my side when I needed you there,
You've been my sister for many years.
Thanks for your loyalty, love, and generosity.
I'm the one who fell short, and that's a pity.
For the special things only you can do,
For all those things, I thank you!
Time and space may not be our friend,
But the yearning in my heart will never end.
I'm proud to call you my sister,
Happier still to call you my friend.
Our times together are not over yet.
Your face, your voice I'll never forget.
I'll seek you out wherever I go
Because I know, Sister, you love me so.
Stay in the light until we meet again.
We'll do it better next time without the pain.
Dealing With Death Years Later
Four years have now passed,
my hearts 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 life...it changed my soul.
4. My BabyMy Sister Was My Everything
She was my baby, fragile and small.
She was beautiful, like a little girl's doll.
She was older than I, but so quiet and weak,
And when I heard to dire news, I wept
'Cause she was my baby.
I stuck on her like glue; you couldn't pull me away.
She was my sister, and I needed her to stay.
She was the only one I trusted; I loved her most of all.
We kept each other's secrets, and I wouldn't let her fall.
She slept for so long on that hospital bed.
My dad put his hand on her cold forehead.
The steady, loud sound echoed through the room.
The line on the monitor settled my mood
She was gone, and I was too.
So much happened in the years that passed.
The crying slowed, and the healing came at last,
But the thoughts won't leave.
They will never subside.
What could I have done on that
Sad, fateful night?

Grieving Your Loss
Awake, I'm thinking of you.
Asleep, I'm dreaming of you.
I'm thinking and crying,
I'm sleeping and weeping.
The pain that I have lost you cannot be eased.
My desire to be with you cannot be pleased.
Some people say time will heal the pain.
In my heart your memories will FOREVER remain.
Poem About Losing A Sister To Addiction
So many questions running through my mind,
I am suddenly unable to speak.
I hear your voice on the other end,
Your cries turn into shrieks.
This moment I will forever remember,
It is a scar upon my soul.
I am more sure about this than I have ever been,
My heart will never be whole.
So many questions running through my mind,
The pain stabs at my chest.
Tears colliding with one another,
How will I survive this test?
Stricken with an unbearable weight,
A feeling of emptiness echoes inside.
The two compete for control of my body,
Moving in and out like the tide.
So many questions running through my mind,
When will I awake from this dream?
I hear your voice on the other end,
Your cries turn into a scream.
She's gone, she's gone, I hear you say,
And yet I don't comprehend.
To bear the thought of my little sister
Being someone I will never see again.
So many questions running through my mind,
But at the same time my thoughts disappear.
Taken away by the demons of addiction,
The one thing she promised to never fear.
As my anger fades and reality sets in,
While the darkness moves in on the light,
Tattered on the ground are the broken promises
Of the loved ones we've lost to this fight.Latest Shared Story

Poem On Mourning Loss Of Teen Sister
Little Megan went to heaven and a tear fell from my eye,
But now my little sister is swinging from cloud to cloud in the sky.
I lost a sister that I love like the sun rays love the land,
Without her here it scares me so, for I'll never understand,
Why did she have to go so soon, so far before you or I?
I wish the Lord would tell me why my sister had to die.
Friends forever is what we said when we were very young,
But now it is amazing that only the memories will live on.
Pictures I see of you and me make me very happy,
But that's all that's left behind,
For I'll never hear you laugh again or ever see you smile.
I wish this heartache would lessen,
I wish this pain would be gone.
'Til one day I understand why God came and took your hand.
But sister so sweet, rest in peace on the clouds above and make yourself at home,
For now your time on Earth is done and we must carry on.
FOREVER LOVED, FOREVER MISSED, FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS!!
In loving memory of Megan Botha
6/3/1990 - 8/2/2008 (17 Years Old)
I closed my eyes,
Felt the warmth of the sun on my face.
All the grief and pain
Was simply too hard to erase.
I could smell the ocean in the air.
I opened my eyes only to see you far off in the distance.
I knew it was you there.
I called out your name
As I ran to you.
My prayers had been answered.
It was all too good to be true.
Beautiful as always,
You smiled and held me so near.
This moment was happening;
It was all perfectly clear.
You laughed and said,
"I'm happy you're here. Welcome to my beach in the sky,
But you can't stay forever,"
As a big sister always knows why.
"You see there is a little place at my beach in the sky.
It's called Heaven and that's where I live.
I am happy and content
And have no one else to forgive."
"I dance in the sun and play in the waves.
I collect seashells as I watch the sun rise and set
All of my days."
"I know no more hate, sorrow or grief.
I only know love and peace.
And I stand firmly with my God on that belief."
"You have not yet learned what it takes.
You can't be with me on my beach in the sky.
Just because you think you have faith,
You still have not learned why."
"Go back to your world and do what you can.
Be kind and gentle to each and every man.
Have a compassionate heart.
Remember my words as we now must part."
"Little things matter.
Be the best you can be.
Take great care with others
As you would a seashell at sea.
Be helpful, be strong
And never ask why.
That's all it takes
To reach my beach in the sky."
I opened my eyes
And felt the mean spring-winter cold.
It was all an illusion,
Everything I had just been told.
The snow flurries fell.
I was not on a beach
But was back in my hell.
It could have all been a dream
Until I looked down
And discovered a seashell.Latest Shared Story

9. Without YouLosing A Sister-In-Law To Depression
What could I have done
To be the one
To help you through your darkest hours?
I wish I knew
What troubled you
And gotten ridden of your demons.
But I was blind,
I could not see,
And now you're gone forever...
Why did you leave?
A wave of grief
Relentless, merciless, and endless
Has hit us hard,
And in its might,
I'm devastated, hurt, and shattered.
You are my friend,
My intelligent, beautiful sister
We shared so much,
But I misjudged
And did not see your struggles.
If I could change
What fate arranged,
I'd do it in a heartbeat.
I never knew
That without you,
My heart would ache so badly.
Know that I will keep you close to me,
No matter where I go or where I'll be.Latest Shared Story

I am just a girl who misses her sister.
I wonder if she's missing me too.
I hear the wind when everything else is silent.
I see the horizon when I stare straight ahead.
I want to see you and be with you so bad.
...I am just a girl who misses her sister.
I pretend I'm skydiving.
I feel the air come out of my body but fresh air comes right back in.
I touch the ground when I come down.
I worry that you are never coming back down from the sky.
I cry to Heaven when I don't see you.
I am just a girl who misses her sister.
I understand that this is how it's supposed to be.
I say it is what it is...
I dream that someday I will see you again.
I try to live my life and talk about you like you're still here.
I hope and pray your waiting for me up there.
I am just a girl who misses her sister...just a girl who misses her sister!
11. If Only I KnewEmotional Poem About Death Cutting Young Life Short
If only I knew that our time would be so brief,
Spoiled you rotten I would have done.
If only I knew that would be our last phone call,
Just to listen to you speak, held on longer I would have done.
If only I knew that would be your last text,
Kept it in my inbox I would have done.
If only I knew it was the last time I was seeing you,
Called you back and hugged you tight I would have done.
If only I knew it was the last time I would see you smile,
Stood longer and watch you smile I would have done.
If only I knew that I was seeing your face for the last time,
Memorize all its features I would have done.
If only I knew that God would take you away so soon,
Spend all my time with you I would have done.
There are a lot of things I would have done differently
If only I had known.Latest Shared Story
May 2, 2016 I lost my little sister who was only 45. Every day brings the challenge to go forward.
Poem About A Little Sister Who Died
She ran through the fields
Young, wild and free
That cheeky smile she wore made my heart rejoice with glee.
I never thought a spirit like hers would ever fall down,
But it's what we don't expect that has the greatest effect on everything around.
Her heart was pure and loving,
Her eyes as fierce as a crow,
Her voice as sweet as the humming, of the birds down in the hollow.
Everything she knew was happy,
Away in a world to far for us to know.
As she fell asleep in a bed of roses,
She left all troubles and sorrow.
Never did she grow old or see the pains of this world.
Her innocence contained until she can awaken from this Winter blow.
So hush baby girl, go to sleep.
Away from the real world,
To keep you unique.
This morning as I sit here looking up to the sky I keep on asking myself why;
How you suffered for oh so long;
until that morning when you went home were you belong.
I have cried and pleaded for this day to come;
so that it would get over and be done.
The memories of you and I will always be locked in the corridors of my mind and they will be visited from time to time
You fought every day and every night even while you laid there unable to really see any light.
I held your hand and brushed you hair while whispering to you I would always be there.
Then on that morning when I got the call;
all I wanted to do was slam my fist into the wall.
I screamed, I cried in every which way that you Neola, my sister would never go away.
For eighteen years I watched you lay; not saying a word because there just was no way;
The disease took everything you had;
How I pleaded to trade with you oh so bad.
If I could have traded with you I want you to know;
that I would of in a heart beat to have made your body be whole.
I want you to know sweet sister of mine that I did everything that I could to hold onto you tight;
but now I realized that was not right.
Your child that was a still born so many years ago;
needed you more so that she would not be alone.
I feel in my heart you spoke to me last week;
asking our sister to do something sweet;
She sent Mom a card and she got it on Friday;
then she was on the phone thanking her when you passed away.
You left this world with dignity and grace;
forever in my heart you will have a huge place;
I miss you big sister; Your suffering is done~
Go play, go walk and most important go run~~~Latest Shared Story

Over in the corner sits an empty rocking chair,
Yet my mind's eye can still picture her there,
Gently rocking to and fro at a slow steady pace,
Wearing a soft loving glow upon her sweet face;
As the rocking seemed to carry her worries away
And eased the painful weariness of the long day.
My sister's old rocking chair sits so quietly now
But seems to revive my grieving heart somehow;
For it stirs fond memories of talks we once had,
Which gave us such comfort when we were sad,
Or helped us recall funny stories of childhood years
That brought glorious laughter mixed with joyful tears.
To many, it's just an old forgotten chair in the corner,
But it is so much more to this solemn mourner;
For it is where a beloved sister would often sit,
Sharing her humorous stories with charming wit,
Or giving advice that came from a compassionate soul.
Oh, how these lovely memories now serve to console.
Sometimes I will sit in my sister's rocking chair,
At moments when missing her is too much to bear,
And I need to feel closer to the kind, generous heart
To which I was forever bonded from my life's start;
She was my most trusted confidante and loving friend,
Who I will always cherish beyond my life's end.
How lonely and forlorn that old chair seems to be,
But I realize it's not the chair that is lonely - only me!
For I miss the dear sister who once graced the chair.
Oh, how I wish she were still quietly sitting there,
Gently rocking to and fro at a slow, steady pace,
Wearing a soft loving glow upon her sweet face.Latest Shared Story

15. TodayUntil We Meet Again
Today I walked down memory lane to days of that, Our youth
I walked through our childhood and boy, was that a hoot
Our many shows and dances, our secrets never told
Continued on this trip today into our teens
I arose and laughter shook what's left of my very soul
Kept going and not far away were soon to be our graduation days
Our paths soon led us to adulthood, where many days were spent
Our mother and new babies kept us busy to all ends
So glad we had those moments that no one will ever know
For I will treasure them wherever I may go
Until we meet, My sister, stay sweet and pure of soul
For you were and will always be the light within my soul
Those pinky swears and double dares will see me through the end
I will always love you, Until we meet againLatest Shared Story

16. Sleep, My Sister
I wish you sweet sleep, my sister dear.
Although there's so much that you've left bare,
I hate that you had to endure such pain.
On my mind, your saddened eyes have left a stain.
I want to know what crossed your mind.
Unspoken words you've left behind.
Undone things we'll never do.
No sharing thoughts you never knew.
A peace has fallen upon your head,
A taste of sorrow we have been fed.
It really is like a hole in our lives,
One swiftly dug but carved out by knives.
But I have hope that those sleeping will rise.
The Bible says that God will open their eyes.
No suffering, sickness, yes not even pain.
Those who did good, eternal life they'll gain.
So...sleep on, my sister; sleep tight,
For now with you the sky is night.
But after night will come daybreak.
Therefore, I will wait hoping to see you awake.Latest Shared Story
I just got a new foster sister a few months ago. I am here to tell the story of her little sister's murder. She had a stepmom who was a real jerk in all, but what she did was just cruel! So...
never to be the same.
The tears fall quickly
just hearing your name.
Silence is golden,
yet not anymore.
Silence brings thoughts
I just can't ignore.
The nights are sleepless,
dreams out of reach.
Crying in my pillow
to you I beseech.
Surrounded by family,
I still feel alone.
My heart is so empty.
This pain I must own.
I wish I could hug you
and just see your face.
But now I have memories
to stand in your place.
Gone but not forgotten,
that's what they say.
Of course that is true...
but if only you could have stayed.Latest Shared Story

18. The FamilyTo a Sister In Law Lost
I watch him as he falls to the ground
He heart is breaking with out a sound,
What do I do what do I say,
I may never know on this tragic day.
He questions God and why is it this way,
But there is a reason we just can't contemplate.
You were so young and so much life to live,
But I consider you gave all you had to give.
How does a family get through such hard times,
We must stick together even though we don't understand why.
I watch them grieve and cry and mourn,
The baby girl the last born.
We must stick together and become strong as one,
Family is the most important love.
We will miss you forever and remember your face,
God will bring you to us in his special way.
We'll remember the good times and the hard times too,
You were only 18 but there were more than a few.
As the years go by we will pass along your life;
To my children I am your brothers wife.
We love you Kimberly God rest your soul, you are greatly loved and greatly missed, we will keep your memory alive!
20. Always Remember
As she blossomed into a rose
We got to see her best and worst side,
We loved her to death
But then she died.
She was loved by many
And hated by some,
She may have been different
But God wanted her to come.
A beautiful voice
That reflected her smile,
We will always remember
That she was worth while.
As I sit here and write this
Tears stream down my face,
I miss my sister and
That feeling can not be replaced.
