in loving memory, leah elizabeth This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I remember
When we would play
King of the mountain
On your freshly made bed
Mommy would be mad at us
But we wouldn’t care

I remember
How I would let you win
Just to see you shine
When you would say
“I beat my big sis!”

I remember
How your brown hair
Bounced when you would
Run up and hug me
Your big blue eyes
Widened in excitement

But now your image is just
A picture in a frame
And all I can do now
Is remember.

Speechless...... So good. I love the way you made it both sad and beautiful at the same time.
