EX CORDE MEO, AD ASTRA
Today I write a letter for you.
On July 13th 1983, an angel landed on Earth,
And her name was Sophia Saly.
She had a smile as wide as the universe,
A sense of humour so dark it could break light.
A superpower that was the glue to 11 people,
That made up our family.
On the 10th of August 2012,
We had a conversation,
That triggered a promise.
And it bound me to this world,
Even if you left it.
On the 15th of August 2012,
It felt like you were ripped away.
And it ripped a scar so deep in me it has never left.
But if these scars is the price I pay,
from just holding on to you, and every memory of you.
Then I choose to hold on to you.
As far away as you are.
I still see you from across the universe.
If I could trade places with you, I would.
I send this letter to you.
From my heart, to the stars.
In memory of my darling sister.
Sophia Saly 13/07/1983 - 15/08/2012
