I wish you Back 

The world my sorrow will never see
Only God, when I am on bended knee.
I begged you Sis, please do not go home
Do not leave me here to face this world alone.
You left an empty place within my heart
From me I thought you would never part.
I touch your things as I look around
The tears fall silently to the ground.
There are still many times I feel you near
My spirit feels yours and I know you are here.

The times we had when we were alone
With no other will these be known.
The times we revealed our secret thoughts
In hopes we would never be caught.
I could always tell you what ever was on my mind
I love you Sis, you were one of a kind.
I still reach out to touch your hand
Even though I know you are in a better land.
As sisters do, I have been jealous before
But now where you are , I am even more.

I know the day's coming when I will enter in
To be with you out of a world of sin.
Remember when we laughed until we cried
The tears streamed down from our eyes.
These are times we will get to talk about
When I get there, we will laugh and shout.
I will be looking forward to that day
We will dance and sing like kids at play.



I miss you Sis, and in my heart there is a crack
I am sorry Sis, I can not help it, I wish you back.
I know the day's coming when I will enter in
To be with you out of a world of sin.
Remember when we laughed until we cried
The tears streamed down from our eyes.
