Forty seven years ago

She was only fifteen

Defining her life

Remaining carefree.


Nineteen sixty eight

She was only a child.

A budding flower

That could never die.


Reality knocked

On her golden door

Hurting her heart

Then, wanting more.


A love of her life

On a distant shore

Succumbed to battle

Her brother, who she adored.


Forty seven years later

Promises still come

Sitting by her door

She pray’s to be done.

It seems like this is an MIA story. But I may be wrong. It is still very poignant.

grief is such an individual journey...I have just been pondering on such things myself...
To retain the love and memories of loved ones whilst still reaching for all the happiness life has to offer us each precious day....
Not an easy path...but we try....
