It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and remember.
Time, it certainly does fly by.
Yesterday was already the one year anniversary of my sister’s death. My mom & I were sitting on the bench at the cemetery talking about how fast the year went. Sometimes we still think her death was just a dream.
The best way for me to get out my emotions is through writing poetry. So here is one I wrote remembering my sister Lisa.
Prioritize, the list can wait
Because it will soon be too late
We say “tomorrow” in our exhaust
Not realizing the time will soon be lost
Time it seems to quickly pass
Slow down, you’re going way too fast
One day I go to pick up the phone
But then I remember you’re never coming home
The last conversation I had with you
It makes me wonder if you knew
But wait I still have things to voice
Now you’re gone there is no choice
But wait I didn’t get that one more hug
Now on my heart I feel a permanent tug
But wait I didn’t get to say…
I guess I should have seized the day
Time will not wait, it will go on
Don’t waste it, but embrace each new dawn

Time is precious, it goes by quick. Look around you and soak it all in. Don’t take anything, especially time, for granted. Things can change in a heartbeat.
I miss you Lisa.
