I lost my sister severay years ago ..My Angel

by Janet Ritchie
(Oviedo, Florida)

The pain has never gone away. I wrote this poem for her I would like to share with you. I also published it as a song.

My Angel

As I look into the heavens,
Piercing through a cloud,
Sometimes I think I see you
Laughing there out loud

I know it's just a dream,
But still it helps to get me through;
As nothing seems the same
Since I last said goodbye to you.

I know that you are happy,
And are watching over me;
And I know the pain and sadness
Now is gone, and you are free.

In my heart I have an album
That I dedicate to you,
Filled with images and memories
And times shared by us two.

It is with me as I walk along
The road of life each day,
And I know that you are with me
In each step along the way.

With all that you have taught me
Stored here deep within my heart,
You're so much in my memories
I know we'll never part.

You have always been my angel,
Now at last you have your wings.
Now you travel through the heavens
As God's angel choir sings.

That is a beautiful poem. I lost my son in April of this year, unexpected. Everyday is a struggle. Your poem expresses so much of how I feel about my son. Just take one day at a time and try to enjoy a good moment when you can. God Bless

Dear Janet,

What beautiful words. Your sister is surely very proud to have you as her sister. She must have been a wonderful person and always cherish your memories; no one can take them away from you.
I lost my husband of 46 years this past June of a massive heart attack, the day after our anniversary. Those words could be for my husband also.
God bless you and always cherish your sisters memory; her spirit is always with you.
