Old Guy Photography

The Old Guy … Sister …




I regret that I never met my sister,

Of so many forgotten years ago.

Her life a brief moment;

A wisp of wind that never got started,

With no footsteps left for me to follow.


What would she have said to me,

The brother she never knew?

Was there wisdom we could have shared,

Or special secrets just for us?


I regret that I never met my sister,

The simple touch of her hand.

What of her smile, I can only imagine;

Would her laughter light up the room?


So many years have passed,

Oh, what could have been.

Sweet sister of the past I never knew,

Pray tell know in your restful sleep,

Of a brother’s thoughts and love.

I was told by my grandfather that if you are destined to hang you'll never drown. I have never been afraid of water . . .
