A tribute to my sister

My Lovely Sister

by Barbaraj1

Lila was sister and best friend
all the way to the very end.
We talked about memories on walks.
All subjects covered by our talks.

We spoke about our early days.
We gave our parents lots of praise.
Memories were mingled once in a while.
However, that only made us smile.

Lila painted lovely pictures.
On our wall, they've become fixtures.
We had some thoughtful discussions
on our trip to see the Russians.

My sister was thoughtful and sweet.
Without her, I don't feel complete.
Lila was filled with compassion.
Her love for books was her passion.

She was very intelligent,
spoke of things that were relevant.
Lila dear, all I can proclaim
is without you, life isn't the same.



My sister passed away 4 years ago. I think about her every day.
