I’ll Cry Later ~ A poem I wrote long ago

My sista is leaving me today. This morning to be exact
she’s leaving
she’s moving far away from me
It hurts but I can’t say so
Why?
because she’s happy, she’s in love

My sista is leaving me today. This morning to be exact
she’s leaving
going an airfare away, not too far
but far enough
It hurts but I can’t say so
Why?
because he loves her too, he needs her now

My sista is leaving me today, this morning to be exact
she’s leaving today – he’s coming to take her away
going far away
It hurts but I can’t say so
Why?
because I can’t send her on her way with sadness
with tears, with sorrow.

She’ll miss me, I know she will
but not today, not tomorrow
she needs her smiles today, for him
He thrives on her beautiful smiles
She’ll miss me, I know she will

My sista is leaving me today, this morning to be exact
she’s leaving
she’s moving far away from me
It hurts but I can’t say so
Why?
because she’s getting a love that a sister cannot give
She’s getting a lifetime of happiness
A lifetime of support – A lifetime of love, affection, trust & respect…..
The way God intended it to be

My sista is leaving me today, going far away
not too far – only an airfare away
She’s leaving, he’s taking her today
I won’t cry
Why?
because he loves her so, with all his heart and soul
She doesn’t need me anymore
She’s in good hands, well cared for and loved

My sista is leaving me today
he took my sista away from me
But I rejoice in my new-found Brother
whom I love and Deeply Respect
He came today and took her away
….and I’m happy.

God bless them, keep them safe
Multiply their love and keep them close to you – Amen

My sista left me today.
I’ll cry later.
Today I will smile for her.
