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!

    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.
