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

    This is such a beautiful way to honor your sister. Beautifully written, my friend!

  3. My beloved brother, I feel unworthy of your words and certainly not sure I always live up to them. Our relationship is one of a very few in which I simply have no regrets – not even for the bad times – because you have nudged me in your own way to look at myself through eyes other than my own. Whether it was mere luck, or predestined fate, or even Karma, I never forget how blessed I am to have you as my family and as my true best friend. I love you so much!

  4. You and your sister are both lucky to have each other.
