Wendy Over The Hill ...

Today is my Sister's 50th Birthday. She is in Heaven ...

she is on my shoulder

and in my heart
she's a spirit in my house

she's a humming bird
a butterfly
a rain drop
and a flake of snow

she's every flower in my garden
she's ashes in a beautiful blue urn

she's on my dashboard
my night table
she's in my trees
and my horse barn

the pain is in missing her
when she is everywhere.


  1. So beautifully written. I can feel your heartache..so can Wendy.

  2. Laurie, Your loving poem, which speaks both of joy and of sadness, is a great tribute to your Sister. I believe she's especially inside you - though I'm sure that doesn't make missing her any less intense.

  3. What a beautiful tribute to your precious sister. Your words resonate within me. Happy Birthday, Wendy!
