Dedicated to my beautiful sister, Rebecca Jo,
whose life was cut short at age 24; a victim of domestic violence.

April's Angel

Sister, you left me without saying goodbye
And lived your life in a wink and a sigh
Born in the spring with a short season to give
I lost you in the fall leaving a long winter to outlive
You taught me love and held me close in my grief
I'm wishing we had never put our faith in false belief
Nothing could harm us as we sought out love
When you were gone, something I could barely speak of

I miss your presence even more today
On your birthday, this Easter Sunday
I have only to hope and pray
And wonder about the woman you would have become
Lend me your strength not to succumb

To sadness, yet whisper to me to go on and grow
So I carry you with me wherever I go
You're there in my dreams and never really apart
Now you can finally take flight and know heaven's heart
You are my April angel that will never depart

    I'm sorry you lost your sister, Karen. This is a beautiful loving tribute to her and I hope you can find some joy in your memories on Sunday. Your description of her as an April angel whose life passed by in a wink touched my heart. Love, Carolyn
