She Won't Need It Anymore--By Helen Dowd--Canada

She Won't Need It Anymore

It is when I look around me, and I see my sister’s things.
Oh what pain wells up within me!  How my soul with anguish wrings!
When my eyes fall on her sweater hanging limp behind the door,
It is then the cruel truth hits me: She won’t need it anymore
