~ Sister! Oh Sister! ~

by ladyliterati

 

If tears could resurrect
Sister! Oh sister!
What a paean of joy
Would burst through
My very soul,
Resounding throughout
The valley below!

My eyes no longer
Behold your beauty
My ears
The tenderness
In your voice
Severed are we
Throughout eternity

Long, warm tears
Have watered
The flowers
Blooming on your grave
Cold, the stone
Lips have kissed goodbye
Yet does not satisfy

If tears could resurrect
As the seed, the bud, the bloom
Sister! Oh Sister!
Want a paean of joy
Would burst through
My very soul,
Resounding throughout
The valley below!
