So much in a sister
Is knowing true your heart
Sharing things no one else knows
Of what we are a part

Stories told at bedtime
And secrets few could know
Always there for guidance
In times we have to grow

You see our time as finite
Which couldn’t be further from the truth
Connection is truly timeless
Like the moments of our youth

We can still have conversations
Though you might need to listen more
There’s more to life and living
And adventures yet in store


Sisters is an inspirational poem by Robert Longley about the connection of two sisters that extend beyond the time when one of them is no longer with us.
