For All The Times
~*Marge Tindal*~

For all the times you wrote
those letters with a page and one line
For all the cards you sent
that are in this cedar chest of mine

For all the pictures you shared
for the trinkets in a sack
I'd gladly give them all up
just to have you back

Sifting through the memories
I pause time after time
when glancing at a piece of you
left within my mind

I'm glad that I kept them
nostalgic as I'm prone to be
They will be here for all time
of you they'll always remind me

My heart is heavy-laden
Walk in peace, sister dear
I will see you again someday
until then
I hold your memory near


*In loving birthday memory of my sister, Shari.
Here too short - gone too long~

Marge, this is deeply touching. I am incredibly sorry for the loss of your sister...we seem to always be willing to give everything up to have the person back, don't we? Even one more day...beautiful, heartfelt words my dear friend, I'm sure that somewhere your sister is looking down and smiling.

An outstanding tribute. I'm so glad I took the time to dip into this forum.
Very excellent work. Keep your sister close at heart.

The love between you and your sister is evident
and there is no doubt in my mind
that she is proud of you and loves
the beautiful poem you wrote in her memory

This was a lovely tribute to your sister, and I am so glad to see that you have "trinkets" with which to celebrate her life. This is so important, to remember how they lived, and what it meant to you. I see she meant a lot, and I wish to extend a wee hug to you while you hold your memories dear.

Happy Birthday, Shari... You share a birthday with someone very special to me... my dad. And as I see him this weekend, I'll give him an extra special hug from a Margie gal who's so full of love her heart reaches heaven to share you with us.

This is beautiful, Marge... {{{{{HUGS}}}}}

This struck sucha responsive chord in me as I too lost a sister too soon. This is well written and certainly shares your inner feelings. I enjoyed reading it.
