We live in an age of petrified bliss
I hope what I say isn’t amiss
But everything’s past now
Everything’s fixed – not easy to dismiss
This picture shows your generous smile
A smile that lasted just awhile
For you were a wonder
Of lows and highs, of pain and denial
Will I meet you next on the astral plane?
My double returning home again?
I can never accept
losing you and not seeing you again
Memories fade and photos always lie
Did this have to be our last goodbye?
You were my dear sister,
soul mate, and friend – but truths can’t satisfy
Those amber days that shone bright at the core
seemed to me to hold so much in store
But you thought, maybe not,
and went away – I wanted so much more
