To Dawn

To my little sister,
Who is not really small
It’s just that she is younger than I 
And she’s not very tall

The other day she had a bang
Unfortunately on her head
There is a good side to this 
She could have ended up dead

The trouble is the bang has rattled 
What brains she does possess
At least the scans did find some
But they are a vibrating mess

They say she will improve 
But that cannot be
Because my little sister
Is already perfect for me

She may struggle talking 
But I can feel for her
With her new stutter and my daft voice
We sound a right daft pair

We think we’ll start a chat line
But not sure what it’ll be
We might begin an auction site
We’ll have to wait and see

GGGoing  GGGoing gone
She would be good at that
But with my alternating voice
I just sound like a real pratt

Between my highs and lows
And her struggle with her words
There’s’ one think we both know
We are not a pair of nerds

So to my sister Dawn
I send you all my love
Get well soon sweetheart
You are the hand that fits my glove.

To those that know us they know we are both struggling with speech but for two different reasons.

    Dear Mandy - "The hand who fits my glove" is just a beautiful set of words. You have a lovely outlook on you and your sister's mutual impediments. God has blessed you with the talent of writing well and finding fun - at least you've given me a great big smile.. Right on and write on. love, Kathy

    I wish your sister to recover fast, Mandy! It is a very pretty poem, well written and interesting. Your skill to compose clever, comfortable flowing verse, is evident. "stutter" maybe in the penultimate stanza? Thank you for submitting your beautiful works and I am inviting you to read my poems, too. :) G.
