Being u – A letter to my sister…


Being you

Being you

I love you for letting me be me in your presence.
For being able to express my frustration on some concern of mine without it effecting our deep ties.
I love you for being there in the times I celebrate life.
And the ones when I am mad at circumstances…
And as your sister I want you to be aware of the uniqueness of your being.
I want you to bless your presence, your birth and even every second of the lucky person I am to have you in my mornings, evenings, years and days…
I want a whole lot.
I want you to take care of yourself if not for yourself then for me for I cannot imagine my space without you.
I want your joys to be mine. Your laughter to be in synchronization with mine but if it’s not, I will try to erase the shadows of your soul.
I am willing to try alleviate your burden.
Share the tools I stumbled upon by divine providence.
But most of all I feel privileged and honoured to have been given the opportunity of treading the paths together, heart to heart, hand in hand…
This is why I picked up this morning my phone to let you know.
Thank you for being one of the best person I know on this planet.
Thank you for giving so much of you in the eight days I was visiting.
For sharing your time, listening…
For your big generous heart.
For encompassing, embracing all that cross your path.
For showing it.
For the light, the proof that goodness prevails.
For leading quietly without realizing it.
For being.

P.s
My apologies for my absence during a very busy winter until now.
As soon as things quieten down I’ll be back liking & commenting again
promise ūüôā

The coin you dropped in the basket of hope

This poem is to honor my younger sister’s noble, kind, constant presence in good and trying times.

Can I begin to scrape the surface
Will you ever know, realize the
Depth of your random acts?

I laud your selflessness the way
You foster the wounded heart lest
They disappear to the winds, unafraid
Of requital magnanimous to supremacy…

Weak words for strong disposition
I tried to pare but would need
To write a Te Deum to delineate
The making of thee

Stand tall, head high every
Moment of the day’s tide
Thank you will be furrowed in your
Bravery well after this tribulation

Time will not go by without a praise
And affection where lies the maxim
For humanity the ultimate paradigm
Thy art the reason for our creation

Please accept and welcome this humble
Verse as a token, as the treasured coin
You dropped in the basket of hope…

My heart is yours-January 1989-Adjusted January 2013

My heart is yours
———————

I know…
Not all sisters
Talk in whispers
Never lose
Their temper
Hence, my desire
To reveal
My esteem,
Your attributes,
Make my words
Obsolete.

Your glowing
Greetings
Kindness in
All shapes,
No shape.
Boundless
Sparks
Off your heart
Spurring ours…
Short but happy
Intervals, tucked
& nestled
Ad infinitum.

Warmth garnered
For our gelid
Winters till
Summer reaches
To expose hope
Rise & growth
Appetence
For ritual.
Under your
Roof is revelry
Your triumph
Over adversity
A proof…

Of youth
With pansophy.
I enshrine my
Akin, my Fjord.
Have dropped
My anchor in
The realms
Of my
Affection.
My heart
Is yours
Darling
Beloved
Sister.
