A book we shared

You read one half

While I cried in the other half.

The first of many we read together.

Entwined in the worlds written by authors

Leaving this one for others.

Your words, “I wish I were dead.”

Heartbroken and numb, I held your hand.

We had lived through it all

Together always for I was right beside

Hoping this time

You could truly feel my hand in yours.

Sisters by birth,

I look up to you.

My smart, funny, and quiet mate.

So many have left but I didn’t care

For it was you I only braved.

“I will be gone someday,” mom said

“Watch for each other with love & care.”

Little did she know,

We came into this world only for each other.
