There Were Seven Older Sisters- in memory of Joey Blanton-Harris on what would have been his 29th birthday

There were seven older sisters

Waiting for a brother to call

The day that you were born

We rejoiced and sat in awe

At the wild-eyed boy in wonder

Wondering what the times would bring

The trees they swayed, the birds they chirped

Our souls in joy would sing

But times, they were a changing

And the sadness came to call

We could not keep you with us

Though we truly gave it our all

But we will remember the good times

All the precious moments we shared

We will remember the happiness

And the laughter

Please remember we cared

May peace flow through you veins

Like a river winding strong

May there be no shame or guilt

May your days in Heaven be long

 

Please remember…

There are seven older sisters

Waiting for their brother to call

We will wait to hear from you

In the Winter Spring Summer and Fall

I am a wife, mother, RN, make-up artist, and musician, who also happens to have a mood disorder. Fortunately, I will not let the latter define me. I am also a survivor of suicide loss. This website is dedicated to my brother, Jefferson Joseph Blanton-Harris ("Joey"). This site is to share thoughts about beauty, fashion, and most of all, mental health. Because fabulousness starts with good mental health! ~"I only want to see you laughing in the Purple Rain" - Prince

  1. I’ve just migrated here after your wonderful comment on my blog. After reading this genuine and moving tribute to your brother Joey, I can clearly see I’ve found another wonderful addition to my daily WordPress Reader routine.

    I recognize that depression will be an ever-present companion on my journey through life, but I’m beginning to see that it doesn’t need to define or destroy me anymore.
