My Sister Above
Sometimes I look
to see life unfold,
Hearing my dreams,
your stories are told.
As I look back
I can see you there,
never to doubt
you really do care.
Often at night
I really miss you.
Never to sleep,
so what do I do?

I look for times
when we were all small.
My mind sees you
just learning to crawl.
I watched you sleep
before I could rest.
Soon you could talk
and that was the best,

So as we grew
and lived out the years,
You, Me and Bo
shared many of tears.
Out of the light
from shadows I see,
Until the times
when you needed me.

Sad in my heart
my spirit's in pain.
Our falling tears
are softer than rain.
My one last thing
as here I will stand,
Until the day
you can take my hand,

Can you hear me
my sister above?
Here is my heart,
my soul and my love!!
