My Sister, My Friend

by Barbara D. MacAdam

It doesn't really matter if we're together or apart,
you're never really far from me, you're always in my heart.

I love the way we both can laugh, until we almost cry,
yet hug each other tenderly, when real tears fill our eyes.

In some ways we're so different, yet our values are alike, so
I know you'll always have my back, whenever trouble strikes!

You know my darkest secrets, and you never judge my pain.
You validate my dreams, and let me know they're not in vain.

The face I often show the world, is who "they" need to see,
but you accept me for myself, as God would have me be.

If I could turn one wish to prayer, it would be that you could see,
how precious you are in my eyes, and how you'll always be.

For no matter where life leads us, from now until the end,
I pray you'll feel my love for you, my sister, my best friend.
