The love a family member gives

is like none other

It feeds the beautiful light inside your soul

and it keeps you alive

What do you do

when you loose the giver of that illuminating light

the light that revives you when you’re sad

it makes you heart, mind, and soul


their love is as strong as the sun,

just as Helios racing along the soft turquoise sky

giving light to the world

Her love and guidance was stronger than any other

and the day I lost her

I lost a bit of myself

the light that kept me alive and warm

was gone

How are you supposed to live with no purpose

with no one to accept or give you love

A love stronger than that given by Aphrodite herself

and every day I shall search for your love

for the love you bestowed onto me

and every day

I shall miss you
