A Breeze of Memory

A graveyard of dead trees

Fallen leaves of vast red and orange seas

Squirrels scurry before winter strikes

As children play while others pass on bikes


harmony of the trees an the wind come together and sing

As a bird chirps then stops to clean it's wing

Children shrieking and screaming as they play

Angry armies of cars roar past, then fly away


Memories start of when I was a kid

Only broken away by time an what it did

Sitting still only in question

Of who I am and to what is my impression


I laughed . . . I played here

I was happy unknown of fear

But then reality again breaks memory's connection

Only to be lost again, still unknown of my reflection

annnd, here you have yet another class assignment that I did way back.


I Will Remember You Forever

Baby sister Poems

I will remember you forever,
I will never, ever, forget you!

My dear baby sister,
I will remember you forever.

You died to young,
way too young!

You had cancer,
Lymphoma, I believe,
and you were unable
to win your battle with it.

You were only one years old,
and I was five years old.

One years old
is way too young to die!

I will remember you forever,
will you remember me?

Will I see you again
when I die?

We had this amazing bond,
and it seems like you knew
that I truely was your
big sister.

I will remember you forever!
I will never let myself forget you!

I've been asking mom
about your cancer,
trying to find out
as much as I possibly can!

I want to know
as much as I can
about this cancer
that took my baby sister
away from me.

I always wonder
what life would be like
if you had survived the cancer.

We always gave you
everything you wanted,
so you'd probably be
pretty spoiled.

You were also
very hyper,
just like me!
You had ADHD,
and were actually
more hyper than I was!

I will remember you forever,
I will never let myself forget you!

I miss you so much,
and it's quite painful!

I want to be able
to talk to you,
and hold you in my arms again!

I will remember you forever,
I will never let myself forget you,
my dear baby sister!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this poem about my baby sister Jessica who died of what I think is Lymphoma, when she was just 1 years old. I miss her horribly, and I will never forget her!

my heart skipped a beat
life took on a new dimension.
