This poem is about my love for my little sister, who died from brain cancer at the age of 10. It is about the love she shared and the love I still have for her.

This poem originally was published in Poems on Life - Teen Poems

Sisterly Love
Your ear to ear smile brought joy to us all
As my sister you knew just what to say
When I felt worthless you helped me stand tall
Now you have gone, how I hated that day
I feel my life has been torn apart
You taught me how to be strong, loving and wise
I know you live on, inside of my heart
Though everyday a part of me dies
But when I think of you it helps me go on
So I thank you for all the love you have
I still can't believe that you are now gone
When you left you were so little and brave
Not only were you my sister and friend
But you always had a hand to lend

    I cried. The courage it takes to express what you feel is astronomical. I've never experienced anything like that in all my 16 years but you gave me courage today. I thank you for that.
