Black Women : Losing a Sister


Well-Known Member
Jan 20, 2015

A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again

I lost my older sister recently.
She passed away in May, but
It seems like yesterday.
I'm not ready to let her go.
Me and my 3 other sisters are grieving in our own way.
We still can't talk without mentioning her name.

She was a role model to us all and we don't know
What we'll do without her wisdom and advice

As the next sister in line, I'm now the oldest sister

My baby sister called this week to tell me
She thinks she has a lump in her breast

Losing a sister feels like I've lost a body part
I didn't know existed

Rest in peace my loving Sister
We're missing you


My sister and her spouse were both pastors.

Missing you Sis. I have something to tell you. But, I remembered you’re gone.
I miss talking you.

Wow, this made me cry . . . Sister IFE, my heart goes out to you and your family. I truly understand how hard it is to let go of someone you love so dearly and they transition from this life. My mother was my best friend, my mentor, my wise and wonderful sage and not a day goes by still that I don't think of her with the same love as when she was alive. It's been 9 years now. Honor your sister with your loving memories. It's a tribute to who she was and how much she meant to you. You're the oldest now and I'm sure you will carry the baton and move forward in all ways that are uplifting, wise and loving. Remember, you don't ever walk alone. The spirit of your ancestors are with you all along the way.

Peace and love :grouphug: :heart:

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
