My sister was in the eigth grade.
She was at school when she got word that she had
A new baby sister.
She cried and cried. She was overwhelmed with joy.
From that day until now, so many years have
The bond that formed between us when I was born
Has only gotten stronger.
When I was a child I looked to her as a mother.
When she married and moved away
I couldnt stop crying.
Although she lived far away and had a full time job
Plus three kids of her own and a Monster for a husband
She still never neglected me.
Summer after summer she would pick me up to
Stay with her for a few weeks at a time.
As a teen, as a young woman, even as a married woman,
Myself, I still would go stay with her for the
Weekend or what have you.
My sister has accomplished alot of things in life
Shes had to face alot of heartache and misery too
But, shes always come out victorious!
My Birthday is Sunday
My sister wanted to be the first one to celebrate it with me
So, she came Wednesday and her and my dad and I
Went out on the town!
We had a blast!
I dont think there are many women out there who have the sort of
Bond we do.
I thank God because my mother is gone and yet I dont feel
That great a loss because my sister is still a mother figure for me.
Without her I dont know where I would be.
I love her very much.
