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.

  4. A Tribute To My Sister, Patricia

    • By Danielle Little
    • Published: February 2006

    It feels like years but it has only been months,
    And yet that is still too long.
    I still love you the same as if you were still here with me, laughing during the good times and crying during the bad ones.
    I miss being able to call you any time and spend hours talking about everything under the sun.

    Our hearts are broken forever.
    People tell us that in time the pieces will eventually come back together.
    If this is true, though hard to believe now, there will always be a space,
    The piece to which has your name on its place.
