One Last Time

How would you feel if you lost your older sister? Everything would hurt. But you have to remember the past, but try, just try, to move on.

I wanted to see you one last time,

 Before you left me forever,

 What more could I ask?

 All I want is my sister.

 

I wanted to tell you one last time,

 That I loved you,

 But I didn't, and my sorrow is too huge,

 Much too huge to be true.

 

I wanted to say I couldn't survive without you,

 That I just can't live on any more,

 But then I thought of what you would think of me,

 You would help me like when I was sore.

 

I wanted to hug you one last time,

 To kiss you on the cheek,

 But you left without letting me,

 And that left a long, hurting streak.

 

I wanted to just see you one last time,

 Before you left me forever,

 What more could I ask?

 All I want is my sister.

 

I wanted to be assured that everything was okay, one last time,

 That I was a good girl,

 That you were there for me,

 But I had to learn that this was a cruel world.

 

I wanted you to be by my side, one last time,

 Just that you may give me advice,

 But of course it won't happen,

 Only if fate was nice.

 

I wanted to read with you at night, one last time,

 That we may enjoy one more book,

 I would cry and ask you to read again,

 You would say that tomorrow we would take another look,

 

I wanted to just see you one last time,

 Before you left me forever,

 What more could I ask?

 All I want is my sister.

 

I wanted to fall apart, for I knew there were no last times,

 To die, to be taken to pieces,

 I never thought I could live without you,

 Even if I had a life of silks and laces.

 

I wish I could hold you, sister, one last time,

 You were my idol, you were my north star,

 You were the one I looked up to,

 You were the one who took my dreams afar,

 

I wish that life was nice, for one last time,

 I wish that I could do everything with you,

 Things that would last a lifetime,

 Things that were nice and new,

 

I wish that tears don't fall, for one last time,

 I wish that my heart could mend,

 I wish it could heal,

 But I just lost my best friend.

 

I wanted to just see you one last time,

 Before you left me forever,

 What more could I ask?

All I want is my sister.

 

The End
