Jan is my older sister whom I Love so much!

Jan would be the first to leave the wedding

Her health has been poor and it was a cold night too.

But when she stood, cane in hand

a line began to form…….

Her family seeking to say goodnight

or something, touching in for a moment

of being close to her.

Wildly radiant as she met each one

something akin to fire…..

I saw all of this!

When Henry an art student at Pratt in NY

came up, Jan extended her hand

with such a glimmer and glint in her eye

a pirate gazing into the future.

Then came the sparkling bride and her groom

hugs and kisses….

granddaughters, daughters, her son, two nieces

a brother, his wife

The night had gotten long and over

and a mist had settled on the sea.

I came last and she said

“Oh, You I’m not saying goodbye to”

And I said “Me neither”

“I’m always right by your side”

  2. Such a beautiful happening! You are so perceptive and insightful! Jan sounds like a special woman and everyone honoring her, what a beautiful moment and one that will be cherished and remembered by all! And what she said to you during your turn, how precious! Sisters standing together no matter what! Always and forever. Such love that transcends space and time!
    Sending love, Sandra
