Favorite Quote:
I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions. - James Michener

Never once to see your face,
Never once to hold your hand.
Never once to know man's grace,
Never once to even stand.

I wish that I could have you near
to hold you close and see your tears.
I wish that I could see you walk
through all of life, and hear you talk.
I wish that I could know your name,
my life would never be the same.

Never once to play with you,
Never once to have a sorrow.
Never once to hear you “coo”,
Never once to have a tomorrow.

I wish that I could see your ring,
and on your wedding day, to sing.
I wish that I could watch you grow old
and keep you from ever being cold.
I wish that I could be your big sis,
I want you to know that you'll be missed.

When you left it broke my heart,
now what I need is a new start.
