Sisterly Love

Your ear to ear smile brought joy to us all
As my sister you knew just what to say
When I felt worthless you helped me stand tall
Now you have gone, how I hated that day
I feel my life has been torn apart
You taught me how to be strong, loving and wise
I know you live on, inside of my heart
Though everyday a part of me dies
But when I think of you it helps me go on
So I thank you for all the love you have
I still can't believe that you are now gone
When you left you were so little and brave
Not only were you my sister and friend
But you always had a hand to lend

This poem was emailed to me by my sister Gloria presently studying at the University College of Belize while I was at Earth University in Costa Rica. It touched my heart and actually found tears in my eyes. I really apreciate and love the poem very much. Tnanks to the author.
I cried. The courage it takes to express what you feel is astronomical. I've never experienced anything like that in all my 16 years but you gave me courage today. I thank you for that.

Ashtyn Bevins Hello their I LOVED your poem! It remindes me sooo much of two people I know. (they are my negbhors) She lost her sister at the age of 17 because of suicide. They were very close and when her sister died she couldn't sleep up stairs anymore so they gave her the computer room to make it into her room. She use to sleep with her sister at night and she would have to go threw her sisters room to get to hers. Her death date is coming up on October 27th She killed herself on her little cousins birthday he's now in 5th grade. She will be 19 yrs old. I just wanted to say your poem touched my heart and others to this day i hope you don't mind but i'm gona print it off. Loved it! Nice job and I'm sry if youved lost a loved one! best wishes ~Always~n~Forever~ Chels
that poem is great it made me wanna cry sooooo much. cuz mi sister died at 3 month. they cudn't tell us what from cuz they didn't noe.
I really enjoyed your poem it reminds me of a really good friend who almost like a sister
this was so toching . I lost my baby sister(Thyia) Aug. 5th,2003. It still hurts so bad. She was 28,comeing home and was hit head on by someone on drugs.
i really loved this poem. im always complaing about my little sister but you helped me realize how lucky i am to have such a nice and beatuful sister.
Thank you so much for writing this poem. My little 12 year-old sister recently passed away after a seventeen-month fight with bone cancer. I've been having a difficult time coping with her loss and the poem you wrote helped me feel as though other people can relate to my emotions.
This poem really touched me. My sister, 19, and I, 15, have not always been close. Infact we fought a lot when she lived at home, then she started to drive at age 17 and moved out of home at 18. This helped her mature a lot because she wasn't really much of a sister to me but ever since she moved out of home we've become closer than ever and it feels great. I'm very protective of my sister and quite recently my sister was diagnosed with and STD passed on to her from a guy, which i'm not happy about. This made me realise more how much i actually love her and we're really getting along heaps. We talk about everything and anything and i couldn't imagine life without her so hang in there Ashtyn
This is a really cute yet tragic poem. I love my sister so deeply and if i ever lose her. My tears will be an endless stream.
I loved this poem. My sister dies when she was 11 and I was 7. I know all the pain the author is feeling, and she expressed them in a neat way!
Awww. this makes me feel like I want to cry because I have a sister whom I don't really get along with . but I showed this to her . it makes you think about the "what-if's" . peace out gurl
I loved the poem. it made me think of the girl in our community that just lost her twin so thank you.
