In Remembrance of Melissa Dawn Burkenbine1980 - 2018
Sleep My Sister
I wish you sweet sleep, my sister dear.
Although there's so much that you've left bare
I hate that you had to endure such pain
on my mind, your saddened eyes have left a stain
I want to know what crossed your mind
Unspoken words you've left behind
Undone things we'll never do
No sharing thoughts you never knew
A peace has fallen upon your head
A taste of sorrow we have been fed
It really is like a hole in our lives
One swiftly dug but carved out by knives
But I have hope that those sleeping will rise
The bible says that God will open their eyes.
No Suffering, sickness, yes not even pain,
Those who did good eternal life they'll gain
So...Sleep on my sister, sleep tight
For now with you the sky is night
but after night will come daybreak
Therefore I will wait hoping to see you awake
My Dear Missy I miss you more and more as time goes on. There's a special place in my heart that is reserved just for you. The girl that knew everything about me, the girl that protected me, carried me through so many of life's challenges. I hold that place dear to my heart as I know that is where you will always be. A space reserved just for you Missy. You loved me completely and I loved you too, the rest is all confetti.
I love you forever - "Sheesh"
Goodbyes are not forever,- Unknown
are not the end;
they simply mean I'll miss you
Until we meet again.
