Sisters.

So many things
I would
Say, if I could –
Things I cannot
Express, but I don’t
Regret the
Silence

So many thoughts
In my mind,
Swirling inside,
That fan
Embers into
Roaring flames
Searing through

So many words
In my heart
Shards of art
Tiny and sharp
Everywhere,
Reckless and
Splendid

So many feelings
In my body, wondering
Slumbering
That have awakened
Energized by your
Radiant
Self

So much joy
In my soul
See, I am whole
Thanks to you
Even though you don’t
Realize your
Significance

Sister,
I have
Such love for you
The friendship
Each of us shares
Rejuvenates my
Soul
