If Just for One Moment…
If just for one moment you could see 
all the glorious wonders my eyes did meet
The day I left you was no easy task, but I peeped 
over into heaven as my time of departure was at hand
I heard all your laughter and had seen all your tears
I even heard all your concerns and even your fears
Nothing more I could do as my body grew tired
although I kept fighting with you all by my side
I was glad you released me my two precious jewels
so, the pain I once felt could no longer rule
My soul went into eternal rest but I’m watching over 
each of you as you know I’d do best
Keep making me proud as you both often do my babies, 
my loves, my forever’s tried and true

Sisters Are Forever
Sisters are forever bonded by blood through and through
we’ve been two peas in a pod, stuck together like glue
All our lives we’ve been together side by side
through the storms of life our love for one another did survive  
I could never imagine my life without my dear sister
but now that the time has come, I must admit I miss her
With each passing moment I think of the good times
as I fight back the tears, I now try to hide
You heard the master’s call, so you had to leave me behind
as you took on wings of a dove and like the sun you did rise
Although my heart aches because you’re no longer here, just
know I still love you my sister; my closest friend
