I wroe this after I renewed contact with my older sister. She lives in the States and I in the UK. I managed to renew contact with her after finding my nephew on facebook. When I did I discovered she had ben through so much as she had breast cancer went through chemo and radiotherapy and I wasnt there to support her I felt and still feel awful. We have vowed now never to let this happen again

Where was I when you needed me,
Please forgive me I am so sorry,
The weeks turned into years,
You went through so much it appears.

If only I had known,
You never would have been alone,
I would have helped you when your life was so bad,
Knowing now has made me sad.

I guess in life we grow apart,
But you were always in my heart,
I wish I could have taken your pain,
But I promise you will never be alone again.

Your my sister I love you so,
I never ever wanted to let you go,
Your tucked safely in my heart,
You and I a brand new start.

for my sister Celia I love you
