Fifty and Amazing

Today I honor you, with all my love
May you feel the warmth in the words I say
May my words decend on you like a dove

Together as children we used to play
You helped me escape a lot of my pain
May you feel the warmth in the words I say

We both have known tears that fell like rain
Sadness could not hold, a spirit like yours
You helped me escape a lot of my pain

You deserve success, you have opened doors
Attitude and strength is what comes to mind
Sadness could not hold, a spirit like yours

Sister and friend, you're one of a kind
No other heart compares to your own
Attitude and strength is what comes to mind

In person or when we talk on the phone
No other heart compares to your own 
Today I honor you with all of my love
May my words descend on you like a dove

Dedicated to my beautiful sister, Fifty and amazing. I hope you know
How much you are appreciated and loved. Sister, friend, mother, daughter,
confidant, undefinable you. You are one of my greatest blessings. Happy 50th.

    Lovely, heartfelt and sincere....your poem touched me. :) Brothers are a blessing. I should know. I have two. I have a poem hanging on my bedroom wall that my brother wrote for my 40th. I'm sure your sister will feel treasured with the lovely words you have penned! :)
