I could not think of the right words to say
When I got the sad news today

My sister lost her best friend
She stayed by her side until the very end

I told her how sorry I was for her loss
And I love you so very much

I believe there is a reason for all things
God must have needed another angel and He gave her wings

She was a little choked up and her tears made it hard to see
But I remember my sister saying these words so softly to me

I prayed for you to make it through
I don’t know what I would have done if it had been you

Thank God you were one of the lucky ones
You were so very strong, you powered on

I have learned that if God brings you to it
He will bring you through it

I don’t yet know what my purpose is
But whatever it is I will fight for it

The love of my sister is still so strong
And I will always remember those words that gave me the strength to continue on
