My sister is dead.

The vast emptiness astonishes me.

The lonely painful journey she made, angers me.

Her life unlived, dismays me.

She had dreams and hopes of change, which may have come in the silence of her final hours.

She had the courage to stay until then.

Is it ever too late?

I need her courage.

    I have no words that will console you, a loss that you will feel always, a sibling is such a part of all your memories. Thinking and saying a prayer for you.
