My older sister Tiffany was a wonderful poet, even had a couple her poems published. She wrote this poem early on in high school and I’ve got a copy of it in my bible. Every time I come across it I smile and miss her a little more than usual.
You Were There
“You were there when I wanted to be my life’s own boss,
You were there to lay Your life for me on the cross.
You were there when my life seemed that it would end,
You were there, I always found the love You’d send.
You were there when I wanted to do it on my own,
You were there to say I wasn’t all alone.
You were there and sent Your only son to me,
You were there when I realized this is what I need.
You were there when I laid my life down to follow You,
You were there to say You’d always help me through.
And now that You’re here I know we’ll never be apart,
Because You’re here in my life and in my heart.”
I love you and miss you every day, sis!!!
