Waiting for that summer breeze
(Davidson County, NC)
I'm alot older now, but 12 years ago my oldest sister Tangee died of sickle cell anemia. When it had happened, my mom felt we were too young to tell us so soon, me and my brother Bradd.
One day she came home and told us Tangee was in the hospital, critically ill. I was there when they let her go. My Aunt Lakina said some words from the bible. Then a little later they let her go. As a kid, that would seem like some play from a movie, but emptier.
And as time goes on it fills up with the knowledge of "what just happened" moments. To realizing what just happened. In a moment. And the person who figured that life was nothing but moments was very right. Lives are moments of being, beginning, and ending. And beginning all over again. So from this moment on in, I promise to start my beginning and start trying to live. Cause I know that's what she would have wanted.
Goodbye until......RIP TANGEE RANEE TAYLOR--- RIP UNCLE JOE--- AND RIP AUNT DOVIE. AND RIP GRAMPA, FATHER OF MY MOTHER, AND STEP AUNTIE, ALTHOUGH I NEVER KNEW U...
