Every day I watched mom’s belly grow bigger and bigger

She told me my sister lay inside

Just waiting until the day she could come and meet us

Until then

She would eat and grow

And

Toss and turn

And

I would wait and wait

Every day I kissed mommies belly

You inside there

Were already my friend

I couldn’t wait until you could talk to me

But First you had to come out

On one Spring day

It finally happened

Mom went to the hospital

Leaving us at home

With her best friend

The next thing we knew

There you were

So tiny

Everyone scared to hold you

I didn’t care

I just wanted to kiss you

You looked like one of my toy dolls

But I knew you were my sister

Mom said

I would sit there and talk to you

Forever and ever

I know it’s because I loved you

Because you’re my sister

For the rest of our days

Through thick and thin

Good times and bad

We’ll always be together

I’ll love you forever
