Dedication To My Sister

My confidante, best friend…my Sister You’ll never guess how much I’ve missed you All throughout this past year Many a time I’ve a shed a tear Days when I just want you nearby So upon your shoulder I can cry Now once again we are together I wish this week would go on forever I love your smile and twinkling eyes You brighten even the darkest skies When you are here the puzzles complete These are moments my memory will never delete Memories of fun, family and sisterly love Along with all the minor conflicts we rise above A death stare…a cross word Nothing will stop us from moving forward Our love for each other is unconditional Even though we butt heads and get a tad emotional I could never contemplate holding a grudge against you And I believe you feel the exact same way too Staying mad at you is really quite hard Cos your spontaneity catches me off guard Your wonderful weirdness and crazy ways Working you out is like conquering a maze An abundance of talent and personality to boot There are many reasons why, to you, I salute! I look up to you for your strength inside You shook off bad history, re-opening your arms again wide Ready to embrace what life had planned With your focus and drive, on your feet you did land But it’s not all seriousness and work Beyond this façade, your quirky side does lurk This is the true you, who has us in hysterics You’re funny and brilliant, there’s not a thing about you I’d fix Your generosity towards your family is indescribable A simple ‘Thank-you’ will never be suitable You’ve given my daughter things I never could You’ve done above and beyond what most Aunts’ would I’ve been blessed to have a Sister like you Not only a Sister…but a best friend too There’s one part I hate about you arriving Because no matter what…it leads to you leaving So please promise me you’ll keep yourself safe and sound Until this time next year comes back around. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ©copyright Juanita Torr ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
