To My Sister

Spread the love

While gazing upon the hope strewn sky
I think of you,
While observing a dandelion sun rising
I think of you,
To the world we may seem different but
in truth we’re one
mirroring each other’s differences shine
like a diamond in the rough.

To the bridges of yesterday come wave
goodbye, believe woe is a ghostly echo
which will grow weary with time.

As drops of warming rain lace the wind
I think of you,
While watching lone tulip raise its head
I think of you,
As surge of a moon-blanched ocean is
both chaos and calm,
remember courage is setting foot upon
a route to the unknown,

and sometimes it’s best to counsel with
our hearts alone.

    So good! the dandelions rising and the tulips lifting their heads, so the appreciation of a sister grows. I haven’t any sisters, but I’m beginning, now that we’re past the midpoints of our lives, to experience this appreciation with my older brother.

    What a lovely tribute to your sister. I especially love the lines “Remember courage is setting foot upon a route to the unknown” and keeping counsel with oneself…………lovely, Sanaa.

    A lovely tribute to your sister, Sanaa, and I like the way ‘I think of you’ is a thread weaving the lines together. I especially love the lines:
    ‘To the bridges of yesterday come wave
    goodbye, believe woe is a ghostly echo
    which will grow weary with time’
    and
    ‘remember courage is setting foot upon
    a route to the unknown,
    and sometimes it’s best to counsel with
    our hearts alone’.
