MY SISTER:

I FELT YOU IN MY HEART AND SOUL,
EARLY THIS MORNING,
I FED MY SWAN AND I HEARD A WHISPER
IT SAID “MY EARTHLY WORK IS DONE TODAY”.

I FELT YOU LEAVE AND SOAR
FOR THE HEAVEN AND STARS ABOVE
AND THEN I HEARD A WHISPER SAY
“I LEFT YOU WITH MY LOVE”.

I LOVE YOU SO
CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY
YOUR SPIRIT IS ALIVE; JOIN FAMILY WHO ARE WAITING
AND THEN I HEARD A WHISPER SAY
“I LOVE YOU AND WILL BE WITH YOU EVERYDAY”.
