When My Sister and I were little
we sometimes used to fight:
she'd read my secret diary
and I would scratch and bite.

If she pulled up the window shade
I would want it down;

If she wore short pajamas
I'd wear a long nightgown.

But then we learned it's better
to have a sister-friend,
someone beside you in the dark,
someone to hold your hand.

Now we're glad my hair is long
and hers is short and curled.
The difference doesn't matter:
we're two against the world.

My Sister

My sister is my heart.
She opens doors to rooms
I never knew were there,
Breaks through walls
I don't recall building.
She lights my darkest corners
With the sparkle in her eyes.
My sister is my soul.
She inspires my wearied spirit
To fly on wings of angels
But while I hold her hand
My feet never leave the ground.
She stills my deepest fears
With the wisdom of her song.
My sister is my past.
She writes my history
In her eyes I recognize myself,
Memories only we can share.
She remembers, she forgives
She accepts me as I am
With tender understanding.
My sister is my future.
She lives within my dreams
She sees my undiscovered secrets,
Believes in me as I stumble
She walks in step beside me,
Her love lighting my way.
My sister is my strength
She hears the whispered prayers
That I cannot speak
She helps me find my smile,
Freely giving hers away
She catches my tears
In her gentle hands.
My sister is like no one else
She's my most treasured friend
Filling up the empty spaces
Healing broken places
She is my rock, my inspiration.
Though impossible to define,
In a word, she sister.

I Would Like To Dedicate
This Page To My Sweet Sister
Who Has Been My...
Bestfriend and My Rock!
I Am So Thankful For...
All The Help and Support
You Have Shown Me During
The Most Critical Times In My Life,
When You Knew I Needed It Most!
I Don't Think You Realize...
Just How Much I Admire and Respect You!
And I Would Also Like You To Know
That I Admire Your Intelligence.
You've Come Such A Long Ways...
From "The Little Girl I Remember"
and You Haven't Let "The Barriers"
That We Have Lived & Learned In
Our Childhood Stop You.
Even To This Day, You Continue
To Strive To Learn New Things
To Better Yourself.
You Often Put Your Own Needs Aside
And You Are Always The First
Person To Reach Out
To Help Others.
Thank You Sis,
For Being A 2nd Mother
To My Children and Being There
For Them...
When I Couldn't Be The Mother
They Needed Me To Be.
