When I was 9 my little sister died


I think of her every day of my life


And to this day I say


Jessie I love you, why did you leave me


I know you didn’t choose bul I miss you like crazy


You were an angel sent from god


But man he snatched you back up in the fog


I was dazed, hazed


You were gone so fast I couldn’t help


I wonder what you would look like, be like, sing like


These things chase through my mind


Why you, why then, why didn’t we have more time


For god’s sake you were almost 9


That was it, I didn’t even get to say goodbye


I stare at your picture and cry


One day my daughter will come when I say Jessie
