A Sister’s Hug


Today is the day

That I am gifted

And holding you close

My spirit is lifted


The distance between

Is suddenly gone

Holding you now

I just want to hang on


You are one in a billion

This was always true

You are my heart

And I, a part of you


Though I call you sister

That is not where love ends

You are much more than that

You are family and friend


As our arms embrace

There is something you should know

Distance is only space

And I am never letting go


Even when life is hard

And the trials very real

It is this hug right now

That I will always feel
