Ayesha


Thank you, sister,
for being there
And letting me know
you will always care.

Thank you, sister
for loving me so
you helped me find
where I wanted to go.

Thank you, sister
when times got bad
you stood by me
as no one had.

Thank you, sister
for being my friend
I will love you until
the very end.

And I thank you, sister
like I have before.
But this time, sister
it means so much more.
