For my daughters...
There's no better friend than a sister -
There's no one more loyal and true . . .
and even when sisters are different . . .
their likeness come shining through!
Perhaps it's a family resemblance
that strengthens the bond they share . . .
or maybe it's just that sisters
live life with a similar flair!
A sister remembers your childhood -
She knows more than you will admit
of times you were Little Miss Perfect . . .
and times you gave others a fit!
She's seen you in some situations
when silence just wouldn't suffice . . .
and managed somehow to get by
with those sisterly words of advice!
And when some encouragement's needed . . .
a sister will always be there . . .
to listen . . . to laugh . . .or to lean on . . .
to comfort, or simply to care.
There's no one who's more in your corner . . .
and no one you're more grateful to.
There's no better friend than a sister . . .
and no better sister than you.
