    I don't like to think
    about how you aren't here.
    Because thinking brings hurt,
    thinking bring fear.

    But how can I forget,
    how can I move on?
    When I am safe home,
    and you are lost gone.

    Our lack of cognizance
    left you in the open.
    unsuspecting and alone
    coveted by men.

    The feelings of guilt,
    will never end,
    because he succeeded in taking
    my sister, my friend.

    So what can I do?
    Would it even matter?
    How do I fix a mirror,
    when the pieces are shattered?

    A heartrending poem

    Lord, please restore JoAnn's sister to her. Sisters are meant to be together for a lifetime.

    You are not alone!

    To JoAnn, I am with you. I too have had to learn to live with survivors guilt. I have worked thru it and I am with you. I will be here more often. Just wanted to take the time and say YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

    To JoAnn

    Hi JoAnn,

    Just wanted to touch base with you and send you my :angel:

    When I lost my sister, I felt alittle lost in the crowd, alittle not sure what to do at times, except the everday stuff. I even felt that I could never feel joy again.

    I am not assuming you have felt any of this, I just wanted to share. I wanted to let you know that our :angel: s are with us and show us the way.

    I have learned that life happens and it is all part of life and we too, have our paths to follow wherever they lead and this is a part of it!!

    So, know you are feeling and doing what you supposed to do and feel God's love, Rachel's love, your Mom and Dad's love, your friend's love and KNOW you are loved. ............Allow yourself to feel it ...........and love and comfort yourself!

    Even strangers care about you.....I pray God give you many blessings!!

    And by the way, thanks for sharing yourself (your poem) with the world....thats what its all about!!! We, mankind, need you and what you have to offer!!

    First, get your education, dont be too hard on yourself, have fun and ALWAYS enjoy life, the ups and downs!!

    Ok I got it all out....(smile) I will lighten up in the future.
