This was written with two sisters in mind, one born normally and the other with greater physical challenges in her life. It could be written for any brothers and sisters where one is so much more blessed physically than the other. Sometimes we get lost within the framework of our life and fail to see our own blessings in regards to another's misfortune. Call it pity, whatever, we need to continue to count our blessings and hold up those who are less fortunate that many times are holding us up silently with their love.
Not many years ago it seems
Two girls were born with endless dreams
And to them held a candle bright
To shine forever through their night.
One came small and tiny fair
With eyes so blue and dark brown hair
The other came with love unmeasured
Both to them their parent’s pleasure.
One was given gifts and more
Than one could want to have in store
The other not as much for sure
And not the kind that could endure.
For daily life is hard to plead
When given less than what we need
And to the other sun shone bright
On endless days of moonlit nights.
For one had all she ever needed
And to the other so not heeded
That one should leave and other stay
The leader path’s that led away.
And as she walked into the future
One to lead and one to nurture
For in the follower was given
Something greater than in heaven.
For to them both a bond they share
Of love and honor, love filled care
But more than that to them imbued
A sister’s love a love for two.
