Sister in Spirit

Written by: Maria Paz Samelo

She is not my biological sister
I've known her many years during summer
Hired us in different schools as a teacher
That’s the beginning of our endless laughter

First impressions of her is bad
I thought she is a snub and make me sad
But later on I found out she’s very nice
A good friend who always gives me advice

I've learned a lot of good things from her
Be a giver, an organizer, and an adviser
Problems in life is easy if you are a fighter
All the things we shared I will keep it forever

Things changed and we faced our own fate
Separated by high seas for family’s sake
But the friendship will always be in our heart
My sister in spirit till death do us part

dedicated this poem to my dear sister in spirit (Pamela)
