Sister

Back when the world was black and white
We stayed up all day and night
I dared you to jump and laughed when you tried
We made up shapes in the sky
Back when we were just the same
Played outside for endless days
You cheated at our hop-scotch games
I knew we would never change
Thunder storms that broke down trees
I ran inside, you laughed I screamed
I never forgot how beautiful you seemed
Or the way you sounded when you’d speak
There was never a day you didn’t come around
We’d ride our bikes to our small town
We buried the treasures that we found
We whispered with the utmost sound
Sometimes when mom wasn’t home
We’d hide together in her coats
We never did feel so close
Than when she left us all alone
When we’re grown up and you’re away
Ill still think about you everyday
Ill call you every night to say
Life has never, been the same.

This poem is very cute.  It reminds me of the time I had with my sister.
