My sister and me

When I was three my parents gave a special gift to me
Small and pudgy, wrapped up so tight
So precious, this gift, it was love at first sight
A gift I would treasure for the rest of my life
She touched my hand and smiled at me
I knew in that moment always together we would be
Best friends forever, my sister and me

Her first day of school our mum looked at me
Why put your boots on, she asked curiously
Anyone touches my sister they answer to me
Always by her side in case she needed me
Never did she stray too far in case I needed she
In that moment anyone could see, always together we would be
Best friends forever, my sister and me

Together we laughed, suffered and cried
Holding her hand as her child is born
Losses of love, together we mourn
In times of sorrow her tears I wipe away
At my weakest moment she helps me to my feet
Forever, through these moments, together we be
Best friends forever, my sister and me

In old age I wonder what we will be
Two crazy old ladies sitting under a tree
In our rocking chairs with cats in our laps
Laughing and talking of the places we have been
Every story beginning with remember when we?
No story ending, life one big adventure for you and me
All these moments to cherish when you and I made we
My best friend and my sister, forever you will be
