From the second I awoke this morning,
With the sun still yet to rise,
My nerves already on edge,
My stomach full of butterflies.
For today would be the day,
The day I saw you again,
The last five years would be as nothing,
And together we could pretend.
Pretend that things were different,
Pretend that things were good,
Pretend that our last goodbye,
Had gone the way it should.
I clean and dress with care,
I wish too look my best,
Even though you wouldn’t mind,
I know you deserve no less.
As im walking off to meet you,
I pass a shop and see,
A beautiful bunch of roses,
I buy just one to take with me.
When finally I arrive,
At the place we are to meet,
I softly whisper ‘I love you’
And place the rose at my feet.
For I stand before your grave stone,
And I shed a single tear,
It has been far, far too long,
Since the last time I was here.
I know you would forgive me,
But in my heart I still feel bad,
You were my one and only sister,
The closest friend I had.
So I make this vow today,
That five years shall not go by,
Before the next time I visit you,
And wipe that single tear from my eye.
(I just wanted to post this here today, as tomorrow is the anniversary of losing our daughter Victoria.. it will be 16 years. Our Son Robert wrote this Poem for his Sister a few weeks ago!)
