This is a poem I wrote for my sister that I was supposed to have read at her homegoing, December 27, 2017, but I couldn’t find the nerve to get up and express myself at that time. It was as if my voice was taken from me. I couldn’t speak, all I could do was watch and listen to others express how much she meant to them. Well sis…today is your birthday! I went to visit you. I didn’t cry! I’ve read this poem over and over the past few days and some other things have come to my attention as well. I won’t harp on that today….I’ll write about it some other time. Today! Today, I just want to remember your smile and tell you that your “Baby Girl, your little sis is ALLLLLRIGHT!” I’m GOOD! I FEEL GOOD! AND I KNOW YOU KNOW I’M GOOD!
Therefore, here are the words I couldn’t tell you then, but I know you already knew them as soon as I wrote them. Love you BIG SIS! Here goes:
Our time together was short. I met you when I was 5 or 6..but from the first time, we laid eyes on each other. I knew that we were gonna be close knit. My sister I only knew you a short time. The dysfunction of our families caused our love to be timed. But time waits on no one…so we all have to get it right. I’ve loved you since I was 5 or 6 and now I’m 41. Nothing can bring back time..but we must keep going and remember that smile. My sister I’ve loved you since I was 5 or 6. Nothing will ever change that..not cancer..not death…not even the moon in the sky. The day you left me I was rushing to you…rushing to hold you and tell you I’ve loved you since I was 5 or 6. I felt you when you left me. The roads seemed so beautiful and smooth. I was gliding across the pavement without even feeling a bump. I know that’s when you were guided to heaven. No pain…no tears…no cracking bones..just smooth. Smooth sailing into the marvelous light. Even though it hurts to see you go..and know that you are gone…but since I’ve loved you since age 5 or 6…this love will never grow old. I love you my sister..kiss everybody for me up there…until we meet again keep watch over all of us…take care!💝
