A Poem: A Sister’s Love

Your mother put you in matching dresses

Pink bows with your bangs cut straight

Two different souls in colors hued as one

The search for togetherness captured in a still

I stare at this picture, two smiling young girls

Daughters of mine

Remembering moments long since passed

A collection by year, new dresses in each

Until, mom loses the battle, a rebellion of personalities

Personalities that shine forward and beyond today

The colors have changed, the individuals themselves

But the blood is thick, thickened by distance and time

We may have brought them in, but sisters they remain

Bonded by matching outfits of years past

Captured in wallet size photographs with a glossy finish

Bonded by the love of many and the experiences of two

This is a sisters love, this is a love only sisters can share

An original composition by the author of Ends and Beginnings



About ends and beginnings blog

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.
