One year on

One Year On

I thought of you today, and yesterday, the day before that and always will

I pick up the phone to message, text or ring

But you’re not there

To talk about my worries, about my sadness

About my joyful moments, just about life

But you’re not there

I want to turn to you for comfort on my sad days

During these difficult days of grief and of ill health

But you’re not there

To hug you and tell you sister how much you’re loved

As you have done to me

But you’re not there

I drive past your last home

Thinking I’ll just pop in for a cuppa and a hug

But you’re not there

There is so much that I want to share

Memories of our childhood and thoughts of times long gone

But you’re not There


Hi @ChrissieT,

Thank you so much for sharing this with the community :blue_heart: I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I just wanted to let you know that you have been heard and you are not alone.

Take good care,

Hi Chrissie T, Your poem is such a lovely tribute to your dear Sister’s memory.
Having lost my own precious Sister, your words resonate with me. It is still so hard to accept that she is not there to talk, laugh or cry with, to share the daily events, or to just spend time with. Sometimes the memories are not enough. I need to see and hug her, but she is “not there.” Another Sad Sister, Xxxx :people_hugging:

I lost my sister February 12th this year. She was my world. My best friend , my therapist, my protector. We planned our futures together ( both middle aged and single). The only other significant person in my life is my mum and she has oesophageal cancer. The bond between sisters can be so strong. I feel like a shadow without her.
ChrissieT, your words seem so significant to me, I could have written them myself. Thank you for posting and I wish you well xx

This is so true and exactly how things are. We lose such a lot. I am sorry for your loss. It will soon be three years for me.
