This reads so heartfelt that I feel it’s a great poem.

Ephemeral Elegies

an elegy for my sister

You were seven when I was born, 

and they say you lived 

the lives of many people

and in under thirty years. 

you experienced millions

of smiles, laughs, and tears

woven into ten thousand, 

three hundred and twenty-one days

of love.

and for the rest of my days 

I promise to live by your love 

knowing that you are at peace

even if my heart will never know

the feeling of being one piece again

as for every sunrise and set I see,

I know that in seven years, 

I will be ten years older 

than you will ever be.
