I sit here in an abyss, heartache and sorrow consuming me,
How 7 years ago seem like yesterday?  7 years ago you was here with me!
Who knew that when you blew out the candles, that was the prelude…
7 days later your earthly body gave into another mood.
And just like that, when the vapors cleared,
7 days later, my heart disappeared.
Even God rested on the 7th day,
but who knew 7 years later you wouldn’t be here for another birthday.
7, the number of completion, it is finished,
but all I want 7 years later is something I keep wishing.
The word says forgive 70 times 7,
but the only thing in this world that can heal the wound resides in Heaven.
I could cry 7 rivers, but no more tears fall,
so for 7 years I’ve been letting my pen ball.
Saddest part… It hurts more now than it did then;
what do you do when no matter how much you try, you can’t hear her voice despite listening.
I could march around the walls 7 times and let the trumpets blow,
but even then, the only thing that comes is more heartache and sorrow.
Like I said before, I’m surrounded by it, it is part of my every day,
Did I mention that today is my angel’s birthday?
7 years later and yet I have survived,
because in 7 years I vow to keep my sister’s memory and legacy alive.
If nothing more, I will save 7 souls, touch 7 lives, make 7 new revelations,
I’ll create 7 more opportunities, and in her honor, we’ll have 7 more celebrations.
So no matter how much hurt and pain today will bring,
tomorrow I’ll pick myself up and your praises I will continue to sing.
Rest in paradise my baby and one day we shall meet again,
but on this day, 7 years later, how I feel today is something I cannot pretend.
Blow out a few more candles and dance in Heaven,
Know that being my sister shall always be one of God’s greatest presents.
 
~ A sister is one who reaches for your hand and touches your heart

Heaven Is Smiling

 

It seems like yesterday when the pearly gates opened and welcomed you home;

4 years later and your presence, or should I say your absence, still rings strong.

The glue, the beauty, the laughter, the one who held us down and held us together, without you, our family just isn’t the same;

Despite the time that has lapsed and all that has happened since, I still find myself calling your name.

Melissa Anne Moore, my sister, confidant, ride or die, my friend;

It couldn’t be more true when they say all good things will come to an end.

I used to ask God why, it’s too soon, we still had things to do;

Little did I understand that your work was done, your purpose fulfilled, and your time here was through.

You were born so I could live;

Not because of illness or necessity, but to teach me what it meant to truly give.

Give of your time, tools, and talents, because our days are numbered;

This life we have is a one shot deal before we reach that eternal slumber.

Through you I discovered purpose and passion and was introduced to a life that transcends time;

Who would have known that after you entered the Omega chapter, I’d become part of the oldest and coldest of the Divine 9.

How I wish you could have been here, seen me cross those burning sands as I saw you 15 years ago;

But I sensed your spirit, heard a whisper, and felt your heavenly touch, I could hear the trumpets in heaven blow.

Life is different, my world not the same, and what I wouldn’t do for one last talk;

But I accept God’s will is better than my understanding and I thank Him for length of our walk.

Today is your birthday and we will continue to praise God’s name and celebrate your life;

 I will continue to honor your name and carry your torch and legacy you started is now my plight.

As we think of  how much we miss you, we may shed a few tears, laugh at the memories, and remember the good times as we travel the miles;

As much as I miss you, I thank God for the time we had and when it’s all said and done, I can see Heaven smile. ©
