My Sister, My Friend

Life choose us to share a womb.
It choose us to be under the same roof.
In spite of our occasional rivalry
We still managed to stick together as glue.
Even though there were couple years between us
yet we lived as if we were twins.
I really enjoyed growing up with you, sis.
I enjoyed the childish games we played.
Laughter and/or tears was never far away.
Singing was certainly the highlight of our
cherished moments. I Loved it and you did too.
It’s been about an hour since
I last talked with you, proving our bond
remains still firm and intact.
May heavenly angels continually be by your side.
Always and Forever, my sister and my friend.
