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

    what a loving and honest ode to your sister

  2. A most beautiful poem to your sister, wonderful thoughts!

  3. Oh, Brad…I am at a momentary loss of words. Not that long ago I was thinking about our toughest years as being siblings, when we were at each other’s throats and were unable to find a kind word about or for the other. Honestly, I don’t know how we ever got from there to here. And now – now I can’t imagine how I ever survived without this relationship we built from the ashes. I know at times my mouth speaks in ways it shouldn’t (yours has done that on occasion as well), but as long as you know my heart is full of pure love for you, we’ll get past it.

    I am so proud and so humbled by the man you have – and are still – growing into. You’ve found your way into being authentically you despite the roadblocks set by other people and circumstances in your life. And on top of that, you are an incredible writer! I am fortunate to not only call you (favorite) brother, but to also call you most trusted friend! Thank you for writing this!

    My brothers have never penned something this beautiful about me. Of course, neither have I.

  5. It seems like both brother and sister are very lucky indeed!

        You are so welcome. I am so happy you have such a loving supportive sister. I am sure you are a loving and protective brother too. Thank you for your love Brad. I am so grateful we met. By the way I am still praying for that special lady. You will know her when you see her if God answers my prayers. Big hugs and blessings Brad. ❤️🤗🦋🙏 Jonikins
