My Personal Pole Star

I have learned a lot from you

Things that any from school I couldn't have achieved.

How to make friends, And how to go through

The tough times and how not to be deceived,

I know I would never admit it but I hope you know

How much I wish I were you and be one of a kind.

 

 

You were my first friend, a playmate

And my beloved opponent in many fights

But you have always got my back and clean up the mess I create

You are the one I look up to even if I sore to great heights

You are my personal precious pole star and I would not

Trade my clumsy brother for all the dollars in the world.

I Will Remember You Forever

Folder: 
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!

Up in Jessica's room

Folder: 
Baby sister Poems

We’re up in Jessica’s room
Feeding her a bottle.
She starts gagging and spewing out formula.
I hand Mama a spit rag,
Looking nervously at Jessica.
My baby sister was fighting a battle,
The battle of cancer.
I look up at Mama and say
“Mom, she’s gonna die.”
Mama looks down at me,
And disagrees:
“No honey, she’s not gonna die.
The doctors have started her on new medicine,
They believe it’ll help.”
I shake my little 5 year old head,
And with sadness in my eyes,
I look up at my baby sister and say,
“No mom. No. She’s gonna die.”
Mama doesn’t say anything else.
She knows how fragile I am.
Later Mama would always say that
An angel had told me that Jessica would die.
Next day,
While I am at school,
And Mama is at the hospital with Jessica,
Mama says goodbye to Jessica.
She has lost her battle to cancer.
Mama closes Jessica’s eyes,
While her own eyes shed some tears.
After school,
Mama tells me that Jessica has died.
Understanding immediately,
I start crying.
Later,
At the funeral,
No one can get near my baby Jessica.
I am sitting in front of her coffin.
Just watching her and crying.
Maybe I was hanging on to hope,
Hope that God would let my Jessica stay.
Mama finds Naomi,
My little sister,
Twirling around in the pews.
Just watching her dress,
Watching it poof out.
Mama tells her Jessica that has gone.
Naomi stops,
Looks up,
And asks;
“Can I have some ice cream?”
She doesn’t get it.
For years after,
I’d wake up and run to her room.
Forgetting that she was gone.
I would remember lying next to her at night,
Just comforting her,
Not wanting to leave her alone.
When her machine would beep,
I would be the first to hear.
Yelling to Mama,
She’d come in and fix what was wrong.
Jessica would laugh when I was sad,
Trying to make me smile,
So that I would forget about the sadness,
And be happy like her.
She was always cheered-up when she saw me.
In the hospital,
Whenever Jessica had a bad day,
The nurses would have someone bring me up,
To Jessica’s room,
From the children’s playroom.
As soon as Jessica would see me,
Her face would light up,
And her day would be better.
Now me and her,
Her and I,
We two shared a special bond.
Nothing could break it.
But one thing that haunts me now.
Is that I never got to say goodbye,
Even at the funeral, I was just waiting.
Just sitting there waiting for God to let me keep her.
But it hurts that I didn’t say goodbye.
So now’s my chance.
Even though you lived a short life,
You lived a cheerful life.
Never letting anything keep you down.
So, my dear Jessica,
Goodbye.
I miss you.
