Remembering Today by casablanca

Remembering Today

It snowed and you stopped breathing
Just a teenager like me
The flu stole your breath
And in an instant you were gone
I remember that final day like it was yesterday
But I prefer to remember you smiling
Laughing
Throwing snowballs
Blowing bubbles on the garage steps
Playing runouts in the field
Climbing trees and laughing
Playing loud rock music on the hi-fi
This cool leather bracelet you used to wear
Painting amazing wall murals
Drawing me birthday cards in pencil
Winning that race on your cycle at Eastway
Blasting the neighbours with your trombone
Twiddling around on that old guitar
Proud of your new faith that gave you hope
So many memories
Time was not given us to make any more
And I still miss you more than I can say
But at least for fifteen years
I got to be your little sister
Wow! This is a beautiful image to go with your emotive words - it brought tears to my eyes and an ache for you in my heart - remember they are always with you - watching - and when you close your eyes and talk to them they are there.
