My Sister!

Now we have grown and moved away
and leave our childhood behind,
will thoughts of special memories,
come often to your mind?

Will you remember giggling,
secrets that we shared,
the pillow fights and talks,
and things that made us scared?

Or what about our pulling hair,
or braiding it for each other,
will you still remember
all the things we did to our brothers?

Will at the little memories
hold a special place of their own?
The love we have for each other
is still the same now we are grown?

Our dreams may change,
and our lives go in different directions,
but the miles and years,
will not sever our connection.

Always remember that I love you,
think of me now and then,
the only thing that matters,
you're my sister, my best friend.

Happy Birthday Jenny!
