Sisters



When you are down and find it hard to move,

I'll be your rock, to help you find your grove.

Tell me your sorrows and unburden your heart,

I'll take all your worries away the moment we part.

To have a sister like you, a greatness in my life,

Never again alone will I suffer from great strife.

Never before have I felt loved by such a force,

Stunted I am still from my horrible divorce.

Having such a family, to hold me when I'm down,

To wipe away my tears and chase away my frown.

I never want to know that she is every low,

I'll help the sadness flee when the winds blow.

The greatest sister that I'll ever in life have,

I never want us to separate, never turn our backs,

I'd rather have that fire, the fire that heats the slaps.

Without that fire burning, deep within your soul,

Nothing comes from greatness when it's burning without coal.

Your rock, your beam, your beacon of support and hope,

I'll always be here in those time that you just can't seem to cope.

Forever family in whatever way, forever as friends,

You know I'll be there girl, all the way to the end.
