From Her Heart.......SISTERS , by Audrey
~This is an old photograph of the author of the poem, with her step- mother Ida, and her sister Elaine. The poem is written by Audrey Yeager, a dear friend, to her sister.~ ~SISTERS~
If hearts had the power to grab, and tell,
Oh,how you would believe!
If love, so deep and steadfast,
could force truth upon you,
Oh! Yes! I would force it!
You must be with me in this,
With me in life, real life,
endless, glorious real life,
Not through limited family relationships,
Not only till the aches and wrinkles
Not only 'Till our bloom fades, and wilts, and falls;
No! No! More! So much more!
I just want to hold you tightly
Against my dearest dream,
Pressing you into it until it becomes
Your dream too.
Oh , Jesus tell her
Help her to know
That your good news is good indeed;
That she can live an amazingly glorious eternity
Yes, certainly! Without a doubt!
I would make you believe if I could; for at some point in the
Future, when Heaven is my home,
I want to turn around and see you walking toward me, so I
Can run to greet you,
Crying out , " Dear Sister!
I knew I would meet you here!"
