My Sister and Me

You fight with a sister over a candy bar

And she’ll never give it to you without a war

You sing with a sister though you honestly think

Her voice is not as good.

You sigh with a sister when she falls in love

You wish for her happiness from up above

You laugh with a sister over silly things

And giggle some more.

You cry with a sister when she packs her bags

To start her own journey, and then you hug

You wish she could stay but all you can do

Is wish she will never forget:

The fights and the squabbles and the stupid things

The hand-me-down dresses and childish sins

They’ll live on forever in my memory

Life with my sister and me.
