Letting Go - Poem by Sugar Bear

Our day’s together start to wither
Moves you closer to your dorm
As your loyal little sister
I just want to keep you home

Just like peas in a pod
Can’t have one without the other
I just wish that time could stop
So I could be with you forever

No more crying on your shoulder
When I feel me break apart
No more sneaking under your covers
When I’m fearing of the dark

No more staying up till sunrise
Because we both can’t go to sleep
Or leaving a trapped surprise
After you’ve made fun of me

No more making you clean your side
As we fight who cleans the room
No more begging you for a ride
Is leaving me in gloom

I’m proud that you’re successful
I just don’t want you to leave
Good-byes are too stressful
Especially when you’re saying it to me

I know that won’t come true
But I just want you to know
I’ll hug and say Good-bye to you
But doesn’t mean I’ll let you go

This depart is not forever
I know together we’ll be again
But every second I will never
See you as a grown woman

You’ll still be 6 to me
We’ll always be playing in the park
Doing something imaginary
And running home before it’s dark

Still letting you go
Feels like I’m loosing a puzzle piece
Because we’ve always been so close
And without you I’m Incomplete

    Such a tender and loving write. It took me back to me and my sister. Thank you.
