Missing You, Sis
It’s only been a little over 4 months since you’ve been gone;
That’s 126 days or 3,024 hours or 181,440 minutes…much too long.
I miss you sister, each and every day.
I wish I could hear you laugh and the things you’d say.
The way you’d say “awkwaaarrrd” and “chit”;
Miss your friendship, your love, your humor…all of it.
You were always just a call or text away.
I miss the long talks we had nearly every day.
I miss your “Lucy” stories and all the laughter;
You would do something funny and tell me after.
Sister, you were my best friend and always there.
So much has transpired, things I wish with you I could share.
I want to tell you about our latest Vegas trip and the show,
Purple Reign, you would have loved it, I know.
I told the Prince impersonator that you were Prince’s #1 fan.
I told him you went to heaven; he kissed my cheek, what a compassionate man;
He said he was so sorry, hugged me and said, “Sweetie, God bless you”.
I felt your presence and knew you were up there smiling too.
Every time I hear a Prince song, I say, “Hi, sis”.
I know you’re living in heaven, in eternal bliss.
Knowing you’re with our Lord and Savior in Heaven,
Makes my grief and sadness feel like someday it may lessen.
Memories of you, sis, are etched forever in my heart and mind.
A sister and best friend like you, I will never find.
You were unique and one of a kind.
You left so many friends and loved ones behind.
We miss you and wish you were still here.
Yet, having faith in our Lord makes it clear
That one day we will see you again.
It wasn’t goodbye, instead it was “until we see you then,
In Heaven,” you’ll be there to greet us at the pearly gate.
When God calls me home, I won’t hesitate.
Until then, I’ll miss you sister, each and every single day.
Please watch over your loved ones, I ask and to God I pray.
