Poem By Tessa Eichhorst

Everytime I see your face whether in
person or in thought, I feel the need to
smile. You bring joy to my heart, a
beam of sunlight to my face, and
laughter to calm my fears.

Whenever there's the slightest chance
I may see you, you're all I think about
day and night. This smile which you now
give me could not have come at a
better time. In all this year end stress
that is knotting my once smooth back,
I have the sense of seeing you this

If only the last smile and warm, comforting
hug you last gave me could have stayed.
Maybe this drawn out stress could go
another way. The smile that passes
across your face is the best I've ever
seen. Never has one smile brought my life
so much clarity.

I just love the way you make me smile.

A Sister Is.....

A sister is your guardian angel if she's older,
and your constant shadow if she's younger.
She's your best friend in all your endevours.
Your confidant, protector of your heart,


All these years I've spent without you
physically in my life, but you clearly are
an inspiration. Lately I've tried to be
what you were and what your spirit still


I'm wishing that this day would
have never come, the day, today,
that you went away.

One Cold Day

She hasn't seen him for
days, weeks, even months.
The day she went to see him
will be one she will never

Walk Away

Too many times has something held me back from achieving something great. I almost stopped my life waiting for your next move; a move I'd still be standing in line for.

I try to tell myself my life is greater than you, greater than this facade we both went through. I've now released the pressure of you and walked away.
