The silence creeps through the house,
until I was awaken by a sound.
He was bursting into tears,
as she laid there so still.
I did not know what to do,
thats when my heart broke into two.
Her skin was cold as ice,
as I hold her hand by my side.
Her lips was so purple,
I just couldn’t understand.
Door slammed open with a thump,
made me quickly jump up.
They came rushing in.
Could they save her in the end?
They picked her up,
as if she was light as a feather.
I watched as they carried her away,
as the tears came rushing down my face.
I turned and saw my sister,
it was now my duty to protect her.
Her eyes turned dark red,
too young to comprehend.
I pulled her close,
as she took it all in.
