“Ooooooo patient my beloved sister you left me so soon and death took you young from us, I never knew death had so much power that it could beat the life out of a living person. The brutal impact of your absence has left me lifeless. Am gonna sit alone in a quiet room and cry untill I can’t cry no more. I am tired of all the pains inside and I am tired of all the tears falling from my eyes. I missed you so much more than a words can ever say, my precious memories of you are with me every day. I closed my eyes for only one second, and you were gone. Now, my heart aches, my eyes leak, my soul mourns, and my family are broken. Only a moment that changed forever. And forever is such a very long time. But, you can be sure we will meet again and path no more……RIP patient my lovely soulmate sister I miss you”
