Where are you now?

~ * ~

It’s been two years today since you breathed your last,
And a handful of days beyond
when last I saw your smile.

It seems like only yesterday.
It seems like forever.

I don’t know where you are.

Then was then.
Now is now.
And a great gulf lies between.

Have you seen how far we’ve come?

So many things you taught me.
I think I knew.

So much brightness you shone.
I had no idea.

Where are you now?

  1. Christine, I did not realize the anniversary of Annie’s death was today. I know that you hold memories in your heart. May they bring a smile to your face and peace in your heart. Hugs.

  2. Pathways

    Since not having seen you, or should/
    I say “scened” with you for a /
    long time, I have wondered what/
    kind of footprints you’re leaving/
    and over what bright new paths you/
    have traveled./

    I have traveled new paths too./
    But I think my paths have left the/
    footprints on me./

  3. Tears. In my eyes. So lovely. Wherever your sister is, she knows and she loves. I’m sure of that.

  4. One day your questions will be answered. I didn’t realize it had only been two years since Annie’s passing. You’ve been very busy putting your book together in that amount of time. Sending you hugs today.

  5. I read your poem and got goosebumps all over my body…and then I cried. Absolutely beautiful! Your love for your sister will keep you in mid-flight throughout your book’s publishing and marketing.
