My Dearly Beloved Sister

My dearly beloved sister ~ I

Have but only one ~ I draw 
Comfort and strength from
Memories ~ Like a beautiful
Sunset when the day is done
Songs of praise I sing for you
Letters now will be heaven sent
God has a plan for us all ~ Our 
Lives here are limited and lent
Humbly I stand ~ Grace from
Above ~ Wholeheartedly and
Gratefully, I reflect upon the
Outpouring of sisterly love
Those times we laughed so hard
Our tears poured out like rain – It
Breaks my heart you had to depart
But we’ll cross paths one day again
I’ll look for you in the sunshine ~ On
The sandy beaches of our past
I’ll look for you in photo albums
Filled with memories that last
I’ll look for you at parties hosting
Various themes and flavors ~ For 
This truly was your style and
Way of doing other people favors
I’ll look for you in tables decorated 
Pumpkins glowing on Halloween
Or when jiver’s flood the dance floor
In flashy outfits that are seen
I’ll look for you in Christmas trees
Dressed up differently each year ~ Or
When I’m out shopping for the day ~ And
People around me are filled with cheer
I’ll look for you is an understatement
I’ll miss you terribly seems more true
For sister’s are irreplaceable
Especially ones like you 
No wishful hope or litanies
Will bring you back to me ~ But the
Blessings you’ve brought as a sister
Will carry me through to Eternity!
Time, nor death, can steal our love,
Your Loving Sister, Loree xo

I am a writer/author that loves to inspire and entertain the minds of others. I’m inspired by just about anything and everything imaginable. I first realized the power of the pen as a youngster starting with my diary. My teen yr. Were spent quite often in my room where I would scan through poetry books and magazines for hours, often ripping out pages of interest. I lamented over social issues of justice, the end of the Vietnam war, race, poverty, and such. I discovered then, that writing for me seemed to be a way in and a way out of myself. And certainly, a way to respond to the world around me. My friends often assisted me with rewriting things I loved which all had a sacred spot. At 17, I was off to the city where I landed a job as a Nursing Asst. In Edmonton. I loved working in the presence of pioneers and always felt they had a lot to offer as I listened to their stories. However, it wasn’t long and I had a new vocation: Motherhood! I got caught up in the busies of life but writing little pieces remained a priority whenever possible. ~ My friends and family used to say things like: “You’re really a good little writer...You should write a book one day”...but I buried that thought with a lot of others along the way. But then I started writing a Christmas Greeting when our children were small along with random silly poetry and little notes and quotes. Feedback was always welcome and I gained a lot of confidence from peers over the years. At times in my life when I felt empty or afflicted, I turned to ink. And believe me; some days INK was all I knew! I am a survivor of breast, skin, and colorectal cancer and am truly grateful for the gift of life. I am also grateful to my husband for affording me the luxury of travel; visiting many countries. I’m a mother of four daughters, a grandmother of nine, and a mentor to many. My husband and I live in two places: Calgary, Alberta, and our sunny sanctuary: “Ecuador” where we live 3 months of the year. I am happy to announce that in 2019 my first Children’s book: No Home For A Pigeon” was born. My second Children’s book entitled: “A Boy Is Not A Kitten” has almost come to fruition as well. After that, I will proceed with a Collections book sharing some of my most prized and personal poetry and other writings of my life’s journey. I hope You will follow along with me... Joyfully, Loreexx
