Love for a sister

Marie Munnelly

Our worlds are far apart
Held together by a cord
Of cosmic energy
But the years lightened
Its grip
Pulled us together
Even though I never
Knew you
I longed all my life for you
How odd
Now our time has come
These precious moments
I will cherish
No land no more
To divide us
No persons to keep
Us apart
Sisters forever
In this wonderful world
Of dismay
We found each other
Through the haze of
Fear and heartache
For me a lifelong dream
Treasured in my heart
Never to let go
In my heart wrapped
In love.
