an elegy for my sister You were seven when I was born, and they say you lived the lives of many people and in under thirty years. you experienced millions of smiles, laughs, and tears woven into ten thousand, three hundred and twenty-one days of love. and for the rest of my days I promise to live by your love knowing that you are at peace even if my heart will never know the feeling of being one piece again as for every sunrise and set I see, I know that in seven years, I will be ten years older than you will ever be.
