Sister's Spirit

As we ran through the fields 
Our childish conversations 
Oblivious to the future 
  
Rolling in freshly cut hay 
Giggling at our imagination 
Free from the world's burdens 

Your stunning hazel hair 
Blown in the farm air 
Still untouched by foreign product 

Eyes that reflected 
Both our parents 
Filled with hope 

Days passed, we grew 
Sisterhood and friendship  
Unbroken by fate 

Soon your smile faded 
You hid in the shadows 
Forlorned by others 

Yet your grace remained 
Your kind heart still pure 
Shined through darkness 

My goofy sister prevailed 
Your beauty continued to grow 
Untarnished by sickness 

Years flew by 
Laughs were rarer 
As the mirror tore us apart 

Somehow you were blind 
To your natural allurement 
Unaware of what you possessed 

Sickness struck you 
Life drained away 
Yet your soul still genuine 

Your elegance always a fantasy 
Your glamor unchanged 
From childish days to grown age 

I will always love you 
Miss our naive days 
Cherish our time togehter, though rare 

I hope that one day 
You will know that 
You've been beautiful 
Since you graced the Earth 

You may never know 
Or understand how I feel 
But your my angel in disguise 
And my magnificent little sister.
