I can still recall her sweet laughter as we played,
with our dolls on the covered porch in the shade,
I keep it in my soul.
And how we walked with Dad holding hands to the park,
and sat and talked listening to a meadowlark,
our sister love death stole.
My small girl mind wept that God took you to heaven,
and I have for years, years- for you were just seven,
and I cannot be whole.
