My Sister Now Lives in Heaven

Updated on July 5, 2014

My Angelic Sister

Source

My Sister Who Lives in Heaven


Softly, quietly she sits beside me, I feel her presence


At times of utmost need I close my eyes and see her smile, iradescent


A tingling touch on my shoulder and I know she is near


I ask for her help with those we both hold dear


To watch over and protect them


To comfort and guide them


My sister with wings in heaven above


Knows now how very much she is loved.





Inspiration For This Poem

I am not a poet but I felt inspired to write this poem about my sister because she was very important in my life. Sadly I did not get the chance to tell her before she passed away.

We had had a falling out a number of years before she died - in retrospect, over stupid things. And I now wish I had put all of that aside and just gone to see her when she was so ill.

Seems so silly how I had not spoken with her in years and now talk to her nearly every day. I ask her to watch over other members of our family when they are going through hard times.

      Your poem is just beautiful, Christine and demonstrates that your relationship with your sister is stronger than ever. I am sure she forgives you and now cherishes your conversations with her. Your continuing relationship with your sister, across the realms, provides me with so much hope and comfort. Thank you for sharing these words and for providing healing comfort to those who read them. My votes to you.

      Thanks for your vote jorja, looks like it finally worked! :) Some lessons are just so difficult to learn aren't they? and in my case, I didn't learn it until it was too late to tell mys sister how much she meant to me. This is why I like to believe that she is always close and knows now how much she is on my mind.

      Very touching poem Christine. The link between two sister is very deep, so that it can not be ruined by some silly behaviours. If you hold her close to you, she still lives in your thoughts.

      the poem of my sister who lives in heaven its so exciting to me, since because it reminds me about my brother Pascal Haule who went at heaven when was 2007 year. That time i was in class twelve. I surely had a shock above his death, but there was noway to avoid his death. Inspite of the fact that he was paying for my studies. But until now am a heart broken boy. Hence thanks for your nice poem.
