Redheaded Sister’s Saddness

I miss my sisters.
I need them today.
A feeling only sisters should witness, has come to stay.

The words I shutter, please find me, I pray.
You can lay your head on my shoulder.
The only act I need, please come and sit with me.

I want you to twirl my red curls around your finger.
As you lay your leg across my knee.
I wanna be near you and wait for my heart to relax.

It’s been through all shapes and sizes for far too long.
Living away still confuses me, am I on the right track?
My heart wonders around looking for truth.

Up and down it goes as my mind searches for you.
Which way to turn for safety, I cannot rightly say
Without your voice I am lost today.

I desire the words that ring honestly true,
“Oh Auddie…we need you.”

  1. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but
    after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr…
    well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless,
    just wanted to say wonderful blog!

  2. HI Audrey, I’ve just re-found your bog via Kate Loveton. This poem made me want to see my sister, who I see about once a year as she lives so far away. So thanks. SD

  3. Beautiful poem. So thankful my sister is just ten minutes away. I love your gravatar, btw. It reminds me of silly moments with my sister when we were kids. One would hang off the side of the bed with our head upside down and have a conversation with the other. It looked pretty funny. Yeah, we were easily amused πŸ™‚

    • Hi Melissa, thank you. πŸ™‚ My two sisters and I used to do the same thing. We’d laugh and put sunglasses on each others neck, as well. Great memories.

      I took this photo by mistake while trying to take a picture for a Group Me app…long story. Not much later I fell up a set of bleachers (who does that, I know) and ended upside down on my back. I remember lying there and thinking…I already have a photo of me at this angle. LOL

      Anyway, thanks for the comment. I look forward to reading your work. I took a peek and I’m already excited!

      Have a great night,
      Audrey

    • 😦 :)Every woman deserves a sister. Maintained well, it truly can be a beautiful relationship. Having sisters I think has helped me to be a better friend to those friends of mine who don’t have one. I know what they’re missing, so I try hard to replace that void.

Tell Me, Please...
