Just Lucky I Guess



~~~

I don’t know how I would have found you

What planets would have needed to align

What crazy crossing of paths or plain kismet

The variables are impossible to define

~~~

Some stroke of luck or blessing by chance

Some good karma returned in kind

Fate brings to me a kindred heart

The kind most improbable to find

~~~

I have not always felt this lucky

Or blessed to have you in my life

And with all the love that I confess

We have had our moments of strife

~~~

But family you are, a sister truly loved

Yet how lucky can one man possibly be

That in this life so undeserving

I got a sister who fits perfectly

~~~

  1. A wonderful dedication
    Your sister must be very proud to have a brother like you. Well, the poetry is so touching emotional and reflects the value of a lovable family. And I loved the word choices, especially kismet it’s Urdu, used in many Hindi, Urdu poetries. You are truly versatile, Brad.

  2. Oh, Brad…. your words released the pent-up angst I’ve been dealing with in a free flow of tears. I got so wrapped up in the pain that I’d forgotten there is joy present. The joy is you – you in my life, you in my heart. Today, and hopefully ongoing, I will do more to remember that good that will always outweigh the bad, as long as I have you to lean on. I love you beyond words!

  3. a lovely dedication Brad. Brilliant.
    All the best to you!
    FBC.

    This is such a beautiful dedication to your sister! My brother & I share an unbreakable bond, something about that sibling connection, nothing will ever be able to touch it. I’m so glad you have your sister & that she has you, too! ❤

    Moments of strife are part of a sibling relationship, but like most brothers/sisters, love wins out at the end of the day.
