remembering loved ones

Mind Takes Root in Solace

To go against it would be jumping through clouds,

With no way to see what awaits to break the fall.

To embrace it would be to ride stallions across wildfire,

Leaving behind a trail of ashes,
All that was known sinks to the depth of time.

 

Tears could clear a path to solace,

No way to stop this horse from running,

Taking me to where the earth meets the stars,

Finding my place in foreign lands,

Speaking a tongue from your native language,

So alien to me, though it breaks the silence.

 

A barrier placed through icy walls,

Skin becomes tougher as it is frozen.

Skipped heartbeats take me closer,

To find myself back where I started,

A journey with no pursuit or direction,

Knowledge grows fruit on the tree of wisdom.

I Will Remember You Forever

Baby sister Poems

I will remember you forever,
I will never, ever, forget you!

My dear baby sister,
I will remember you forever.

You died to young,
way too young!

You had cancer,
Lymphoma, I believe,
and you were unable
to win your battle with it.

You were only one years old,
and I was five years old.

One years old
is way too young to die!

I will remember you forever,
will you remember me?

Will I see you again
when I die?

We had this amazing bond,
and it seems like you knew
that I truely was your
big sister.

I will remember you forever!
I will never let myself forget you!

I've been asking mom
about your cancer,
trying to find out
as much as I possibly can!

I want to know
as much as I can
about this cancer
that took my baby sister
away from me.

I always wonder
what life would be like
if you had survived the cancer.

We always gave you
everything you wanted,
so you'd probably be
pretty spoiled.

You were also
very hyper,
just like me!
You had ADHD,
and were actually
more hyper than I was!

I will remember you forever,
I will never let myself forget you!

I miss you so much,
and it's quite painful!

I want to be able
to talk to you,
and hold you in my arms again!

I will remember you forever,
I will never let myself forget you,
my dear baby sister!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this poem about my baby sister Jessica who died of what I think is Lymphoma, when she was just 1 years old. I miss her horribly, and I will never forget her!
