She would rise and
shine with me..
She would part with anything for me
that I loved or desired..
Today, she might be a woman,
but just between us, there is no time travel..
Her gentle, sweet,
kind spirit wasn’t a match for my boisterous self..
But my partner in crime,
my soulmate she has been..
She was always the peacemaker,
an enemy for all my troubles..
The one who knows what I mean when
I tell the world that my childhood is tangible..
The school bags, the dirty clothes,
the phone calls, the giggles, the movies..
The stories, the tears, the scents,
the places, the people.. She knows why I laugh..
A delight in her throat
sends my heart fluttering..
She is happy and there is
nothing more I want to know..
We are miles apart sister,
but you are always there inside my heart!
There can be no situation in life in which the conversation of my dear sister will not administer some comfort to me. ~ Lady Mary Wortley Montagu
