Sister Friend

sister friend
you’ve been down a lot of roads with me
we share things no one can understand
I remember you when you were as old
as your daughter now
wide eyed and new to the world
I’ve seen your pain
I’ve shared your joy and triumphs
and a lot of cussing and growling
back and forth between us
I thank God for your place
in my life and my heart
and your place in my family
and the space you give me in yours
you’re honest and true
so good at forgiving
your love is fierce and brave
you’ll always have my heart
