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?

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.
I do smile often when I remember Annie.
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/
I have traveled new paths too./
But I think my paths have left the/
footprints on me./
Written 1985. I did speak with her last week.
Hmm. Now you’ve got my curiosity piqued.
Tears. In my eyes. So lovely. Wherever your sister is, she knows and she loves. I’m sure of that.
Thank you Lisa.
Hi Christine .. my thoughts – memories of days are sad .. others will bring bright thoughts back .. with many wishes – Hilary
You’re so right.
As you smile through your tears-God holds you close.
Thanks, LeRoy. You always have such a nice way of seeing things.
Beautiful poem for your beautiful sister! Big hugs, xoxo, Julia
Thank you friend.
Lovely tribute to Annie.
What a beautiful poem. What a beautiful photo.
What a beautiful relationship. No one can take that away from you. They can only envy you.
sweet…she’ll always be with you… 😉
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.
Thank you all for your kind words.
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.
I have a picture of Annie right here by my desk, and when I get discouraged, I just look at it and keep going. You’re right.
