My Sister

While my heart will never mend, my love and memories of you makes my heart swell every day.

26years ago I tried to save your life and failed. It took me any years to deal with the guilt. You were only 28 sister. Just had Emma not 7 weeks before. Left an 8yr old son and two parents devastated.

I went on a self destructive path for years after but I was only 18 when your brain tumor took you. I didn’t know how to process what was going on.

Then you came to Dad. You played your broken music box that had no batteries and you changed everything.

It taught me so much and is still teaching me my beautiful big sister.

I don’t know why you don’t talk to me but that’s ok. Your far too busy being awesome out in the Cosmos and I know when my flight comes in you’ll be there.

I can wait.

I only had 18yrs, you’ve been gone longer than I knew you but your impact on me was forever lasting and it is indeed better to have loved and lost you than never to have loved you at all.

Forever always my big sister
