sisters sittimg

They walk hand-in-hand

One, jauntily, with a light innocence to her step
As if the world held no possibility of pain
And each day was destined to contain
Both a dance and a song

The other steps regally
Each stride a confident sweep
Allowing for no obstacles or delays
Knowing the world would most certainly comply

They approach together
Holding similar, long-fingered hands
That swing slightly between them with each step
Two so different, yet the same

For they are sisters

Throughout their lives
Their relationship will dance
Each accommodating individual loves and losses
But always, the bond will remain
Of shared memories
Shared values

Whether miles apart or hand-in-hand
Their two lives will stay inexorably linked

Though they see the world through different lenses
They can face it together
For they are sisters
