In Honor of Sisters - My Mom and My Aunt Joyce

Connected. For a lifetime.

That’s the way it has been,

For more than seven decades now.

Phone conversations – by the hour

to discuss our siblings, our children,

our heartfelt desires for each other,

and those we love.

Connected. For a lifetime.

That’s the way it remains,

as the veil between this life and eternity

grows ever thinner between us.

You have but to utter my name,

and I am by your side,

even in the darkest, most difficult hours of living.

Just as you and I have been together by the bedsides

of each of our brothers and sisters, mother and daddy

and all those who have gone on before us.

Connected. For all eternity.

That’s the way it will always be.

For you see, we are not only sisters,

here in this ephemeral lifetime,

but we are sisters in Christ.

We will be loving each other, sharing our hearts

and sharing our love – forever.
