You remind me of nothing,
Your pictures that you've painted in my head are worthless;
Despite all happiness you've brought me in my life.
I think of ways to remember you,
Yet I can only think of think of two;
None resemble the painted memories of dreams or life,
They are but the feelings I can only faintly recall.
I will always think of you as my sister,
No matter what paintings refuse to show themselves in my mind,
Or what feelings you had ever brought to me.
I will always think of you as my sister.
You had two arms, two legs, two eyes, two ears, one nose...
And one smile.
Though it was never always happy.
Sometimes you cried when no one else knew,
Sometimes you screamed when you had a bad dream,
Sometimes you mourned when you lost a brother,
But other times you smiled;
A smile uncomparable to anyone elses.
Because you were my sister and you were uncomparable.
Because you were my sister and you were undeniable.
Because you were my sister and you were incomprehendable.
Yet keep to your mind as you please, what this poem means to me;
For I have never had a sister like you....
Because you had two arms, two legs, two eyes, two ears, one nose...
And a smile.
