Amid the Christmas caroling,
Cards and contents of such kind…
I was wide awake at 5 a.m.
With my sister on my mind.
She left a year ago today…
Unexpected…much too soon.
And memories keep bringing back
That same heartbreaking tune
To say I miss her would be mild…
But there’s no known definition
Strong enough to emphasize
The emptiness of my position.
There is such a void within me…
A void no one can replace.
I so long to hear her voice…
To gaze upon her lovely face.
But there remains a waiting period
Until that moment comes around.
So until the day we meet again…
My thoughts are Heaven bound.

"Do not let your hearts be troubled.
Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house
are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you.
I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and
prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be
with me that you also may be where I am
