I remember.

I remember cold snowflakes landing on my cheek;

The way my mittens felt when brushed against my face.

I remember the color of my toes, blue and numb as I ran through the snow.

The icy pathway leading to my front door, the one with the big red bow.

I remember winter.

Lying in my canopy bed, next to my mother.

I remember my hands on her big warm belly.

I felt a heartbeat.

Ba boom. Ba boom.

I remember my sister’s heartbeat.

She could not be seen,

Only felt.

I remember the circus.

My father took me the night my sister was born.

The elephants.

Like thunder, stomp through the tent.

I remember the phone call.

Hurry, she’s on her way.

Goodbye elephants.

I remember her feet, soft as a cloud.

Her eyes were stars from the winter night sky.

I remember the pink bear I picked out, special for her.

My sister.

I remember how it felt.

No longer alone.

My best friend. Always by my side.

I’ll never forget.
