Yesterday was Julie's birthday. Julie is my sister who died almost 5 years ago. I really wasn't going to post about her. I sort of just wanted to let the day go by and hide my sorrow. The truth is I am really missing her.
Here is a poem I wrote to her last year:
Long blond hair and pretty brown eyes,
I look at your face and try not to cry.
Comfy tshirts and pajama pants,
Do they have those in heaven by any chance?
These are things that remind me of you.
Little girls who should be tucked in bed,
Talking all night through the wall instead.
Watching Days over the phone,
Saving our words ...for when commercials came on.
These are the things that remind me of you.
That Christmas time with the poofy hair,
I'm sure I still have that picture somewhere.
Forever young, only twenty years old
So much of your story left untold.
