Sister by my Side,

Chasing wild fireflies


at its best

Backyard joyous noise comes alive

as the day is put to rest.

Local fauna praising the Lord's sky

with a cadence of psalms.

Families thanking God for their

summery sustenance

with grateful palms.

Beams of fireworks ignite a horizon

delirious with dreams

dancing into summer-lit streams

teeming with resilient hope.

Remembering these Eureka moments

mitigates the grief

of losing you.

Helping me to cope

with the eerie fact of

no longer having my sister by my side.

Holding on with God as my Guide,

Your Baby Sister
