Little Sister

by *Sherrie*   Mar 16, 2005

You danced
Spinning, arms opened wide
As if to embrace the sunset
A child of sunshine, of innocence
So far removed from me
Such a perfect picture
Of what I could never be
So far above me you danced
Face gleaming in the sunlight
So niave and beautiful
May the world show no cruelty to you
Not yet, not so soon
May you never understand
The tears that glisten on my face
May every touch be loving hands
May you never feel life’s a waste
May your heart be always tender
Not as mine, cold as stone
May you never be a pretender
May you never feel so alone
That you cannot taste the sunset
That you can’t live and breathe and be
May you never lose life’s hunger
May you never be like me

*** I wrote this about my lil sister... It all came from the heart ...
