Celebrating

a poem I wrote to my sister for her birthday

We did not ask

to be separated

To live worlds apart

 

Were we dream 

grow and run the race

Climb mountains

 Walk through fires and

Sometimes stand alone

Desolated

 

What saves my heart

Is the knowing of having you

To be loved and cared for

 

It’s easy to say pretty things

And forget about the connections

One creates….

Through each others presence

Smiles and laughs

 

The deep bonds formed…

Through shared pain

Resolved fights

And a life lived together

 

On this day of celebration

I rejoice in your life

Your rebirth and dedication

 

 Staying strong and elevated

Above wars

Disappointments and

Unwanted expectations

 

On this day of celebration

I call out gratitude to the Lord

 

For blessing you with new strength

Wisdom

And the will to concur all life’s challenges

 

Today  I sing about your AWESOMENESS

I’ll dance with you

Till the break of dawn

Standing happy and tall

Let’s remenis about good times

Laugh until out jaws hurt

And share some tears in healing

 

I look back at our lives growing up

Refreshing my admiration and respect

For your boldness and guidance

 

How you always help me

Through good and bad

And never seize

To stand up and protect me

 

I treasure the still frames

Of previous birthday’s

Paper crowns and way to much candy

 

May this day

hold all these precious memories

let it be the start

of new lasting ones

 

remembered by friends and family

a day of UNITY   and  LOVE

of all the best

 

I LOVE YOU

 

 

 

 

The End
