loveuary

Today  is  Day  24 of Loveuary. My  prompt today  is  siblings, I  come  from  a  large  family  there  were  nine of us three  died  very  young … there  were  six  of us  up  until  2015  when  one  of  my  lovely  sisters  died . This  is a  tribute  to  my  sisters.  I  do  have  two  brothers  I  shall  come  to  them  in another  prompt.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My eldest sister is 14yrs my senior and she looked after me a lot when I was young. Though she has more memories of this than I do.  Circumstance then separated us for a long time then through the internet, more than anything else we have grown back together. Definitely one of the better changes in my life. The photo below is not us …. but it could of been.

################################################

We were never that close when I was young

but now I am older my best friend you have become.

Travels and families kept us apart yet

We were always together deep down in our hearts.

I think the need was mutual and I have certainly gained

From your life learned wisdom, stress, happiness and pain.

The computer has been our weapon of choice

But we still use the phone it is always good to hear your voice.

You  helped me meet my recent changes the facts I did want to face

The times I wanted to give up you showed me how to just drop down a pace.

Now you need my strength and help, you need support and love from me

I can now repay the love and solace you gave, and show you how to be free.

Once you where my eldest sister  just a photo on the page

But now we are there for each other no longer separated by age .

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My  dear  and  beautiful second eldest  sister died  in October 2015 . She was a nursing  sister  all her  working  life and  she  touch  so many  lives. She died a horrible  and  painful  death due  to a  drug  resistant  bug. 

The  machines  murmured and  slowly  stop their pings

As her  soul, finally  at  peace was  released  and  found it’s  wings.

After months  of  pain  and  strain she  was  free  to  run and laugh  again.

I hope  you  are  back  with  your  true love and  dancing  to  a sweet refrain.

 

God  Bless  you  sister  dear

I shall miss  you  so,  yet still feel  you near.

The wonderful  times  you have given me  are

Memories  I  shall never  forget. You are  next  to me not  afar.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My  next  sister  lives  not  far  from  me  and  we  see  a lot of  each other. She  has  travelled  the  world  with her job and lived in Hong Kong been the toast  of  this  and  that  has  settled  close  to me! She  has always been my  idol  now  she is  my  mate! 

She is  bright and  fast

She has a  colourful  past

 

Working with material  and  twine

Her talents  lay in art and  design.

 

Daddy  called  her  girly

She was  so  thin  and her  hair  curly

Always  the  brightest  star

Fashion leader  with a  mini car.

 

I was always in  awe of  you

Even  now  if  I  tell true

Not  just  for  your  style  and  flair

But  because  I love  you  and  you care.

My  three  sisters.
