I wish you were still here

I was so happy when you came

I really thought that you had came

to stay. You made a great change

because before you, I only had sisters.

Every time it comes around to the day

you were born and the day you die. It makes

me feel so melancholy. Tomorrow March 15th

you would have been sweet sixteen.

I sometimes wished that you was still here

I can imagine how grown up you would have

been. What a delight it would have been

to see my little brother grow into manhood. I

loved you at first site and I knew you loved me


Your freshness and mannishness at your

tender age only brought joy to my face. For

in your short stay on earth I treasured every

moment we spent. You broke my heart when

you left me without saying good bye.

I know where you are and someday soon

I know I’ll be with you to live forever.

As for now I am yet mortal and cannot

help the way I feel the tears are still so

real. I can’t help how much I’ve missed

you too.

But God alone knew why he showed you

the good favor to take you from this sinful

world. I know he’d give me the courage to

endure the pain until we meet again.

      It is very painful to experience the loss of someone very dear to you. There are times we wish how different life would have been if they were with us. I can feel the pain in your words. God will have a reason for it. By sharing your pain you will feel a lot more better.

      Hello Joanna , It is so sad when we have to lose someone so dear to us and we know there must have been some reason God called your brother to Heaven ,God knows all that is ahead of us and sometimes I guess it is better to take them back to Heaven with Him, only God knows the why , when you get to Heaven perhaps He will tell you and you will understand that it was for the best, God Bless you ,Love. Clara

      Very touching poem, Joanna. I can feel the pain in your words and I have tears in my eyes. I am very sorry for your loss.

      When we lose someone precious, we always wonder why him or her, how things would have changed if he or she was still her, etc. Unfortunately, there are no answers to those questions. You can only pray.

      Thank you for sharing part of your history with this lovely poem!

      It is so hard losing the little ones and then you were so young too honey, I know that was so hard on you. At least you can know exactly where that little brother is now and that you will see him again.
