Billowy Clouds

Although I hesitate to write yet another post about my sister’s death, I wanted to share a poem written by Susan, a friend and former classmate of mine. Susan, who also knew my sister, Rose, posted this on my Facebook page last week in memory of June.

as she rises from her chair
the last vestiges of pain fall at her feet
she steps onto the billowy cloud
so soft
so blissful
she’s light as air
so joyful as she sees
Rose and steps into her arms
she is at peace
