The Beauty of Patience

The Beauty of Patience

Remembering your smile as I walk into the room,
I think of all the things that we’ve both went through.
I look at you and see all the pain you’ve endured,
And I try to make the best of things, and think that you’ve been cured.
A simple act of negligence is what caused all your pain,
And what could’ve been prevented is driving me insane.
I know it’s your time as I look at your face,
But how I wish it would be different, another time, another place.
And as I hold your hand, I whisper in your ear,
“I love you so much, and I’ll always hold you dear…”
As you slowly slipped away, I cried and cried all night,
I was thinking that from now on that nothing would be right.
As I am now alone, I have to go on without you.
But you deserve your happiness for all of the things you went through.
I think of what had happened, and why you had to go.
I really wish you hadn’t gone, and that I didn’t miss you so.
I know that things will be awkward, just like a word that doesn’t rhyme,
I just hope you are all right, and you look on me from time to time.
I’ll do my best to move on, I know it’ll take a while,
But please don’t be mad at me if I always miss your smile.
So wait for me, I’ll meet you at the gates,
But until that time arrives, I’ll just have to wait.

In memory of my sister, Anna Marie,
-Emily C. Nace
