Our One And Only Sister - Poem by Reagan A. Latumbo

You were already in our mother's womb
When news came that our father died
We were shock in pain and mourn his tomb
The only father we have in the world.

Few months passed and you were born
The angelic face you own
Resembles our dear father who wants a little girl
A little girl whom he can cradle and cradle.

Your cry makes us all cry
Your smile makes us smile
Your silence makes us wonder and sigh
You are so lovely wishing that it won't last for awhile.

Days and years have gone
You are no longer a baby we used to call
Every inch of childish ways were undone
Growing up for you has just began.

Your happiness cannot be bought
Your caring cannot be sought
Your sweetness cannot be thought
Your loving attitude we fight the most.

Whenever you asked about our father
We run out of words even your own mother
You just smiled at us waiting for an answer
We can't help but cry when we saw you cried hugging and kissing the picture of our loving father.

I can feel what you feel
I can sense what you want to tell
We want to ignore that kind of thing
But we can't help hiding our true feeling.

We want you to know that we are here for you
We will not leave you
We will protect you
We will guide you.

We love you our dear
Praying that you will stay strong forever
We will continue loving each other
You have five brothers who will love you together.
