The day when the best present came to me...
when i was three years old...
when she was assleep,
it was her i wanted to hold...
She looked like an angel, who came from the sky...
Another soul, growing inside of me,
a spirit that will never die...
I had my eyes on her,
i never left her from my sight...
when i was in my darkest sorrows,
her laugh was my light...
Her toothless smile made me laugh...
i loved that little smile...
When she first held my hand,
It was an undescribable feeling...
for the love i have for her is like an endless sea...
and it grew more and more when she first hugged me...
We played together, and i used to read her stories...
I read to her about hercules...and all his glories....
I used to sing to her every night,
twinkle twinkle little star...
and she knew it was gona be alright
stars are not that far...
one was falling asleep before my eyes...
i sang to it when it cries...
So i will be forever gratefull to God,
for blessing me with my little baby sister,
for blessing me with little Sarah...
(Dedicated to my little sister called Sarah)
