Wow, such a powerful song, that’s why I put the one with the lyrics. This song just hit me hard. I think back to my big sister, she was the one that really left an imprint on me in so many ways. I still think would she be proud of what her little brother has become. I don’t know if she really realized how important she was to her little brother. I hope she knows, but it does sometimes I still feel torn to pieces.
The Absence of Her
It was four years ago today
That you left and passed away
A lifetime we spent together
I thought you would be around forever
When I was little you protected me from the monsters at night
That would come out when there was no light
As I got older you told it to me straight
If I was acting a fool you let me know post haste
When I was in trouble you were always there for me
You were the best big sister you could be
Always there when I asked
You were there to help so fast
Now you are gone and my heart breaks
Pain so great I don’t know if I can take
The absence of her still hurts in my soul
Without her in my life I will never be whole
For my big sister Donna, I miss you each and everyday. You were the best big sister a boy could ask for.
Picture of my big sister and my oldest daughter who loved her so much.
