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 only awhile
For you were a wonder
Of lows and highs, of pain and denial
Will I meet you on the astral plane?
My double coming home again?
I can never accept
Losing you, never seeing you again
Memories fade and photos lie
Did this have to be our last goodbye?
You were my sister,
Soul mate, friend – but truths can’t satisfy
Those amber days, bright at the core,
Seemed to hold so much in store
But you thought, perhaps not,
And stole away – I wanted so much more
