Yesterday seems so far away

Time passes by so slowly now

So many unanswered questions

No time to say goodbye

You gave sight to 2 small boys

But now I cant see you

You truly were a princess

Though you had no time to reign

I close my eyes and I remember

Your wide smile

You child like laughter

A beautiful person you were

Never again will you call me auntie

Never shall I see you grow and marry

If I could of changed places with you....I surely would

I miss you so much

Goodbyes are so final

Wait just a moment longer.......

Although I cant see you any longer dear

You are safe forever more in my HEART

Loving you always Auntie

Once again, the poems brings out the emotions of losing someone. It takes all of the items a person would miss when their loved one moves on. the author puts so much meaning into the poem, so much feeling. it also makes me feel so much love for Sara, a person I have never met.

Wonderfully crafted. It deals with the issue of death quite eloquently. I feel the second stanza is the strongest, and the title adds a haunting power to the piece as a whole.
