together we shall be

she clothes herself with respect and maturity
she wraps herself up in ideas that stretch far beyond her age
she fights the good fight, each and every day

her hair flows long and her smile grows wide
a laugh is never too far away
always there to make your heart warmer than it was before

she is strong despite the pain
she is wise despite the confusion
she is loving. always.

we walk together, and explore together
we talk about the future
and we talk about the now
realising that we have no idea what lies in store

but she holds her heart tight
away from demons
only loosening her grip for those that truly care

i admire her you know
so many of us do

my sister
not by blood
but by love

together we shall be


written for Genna, the sister i never had.

  5. I agree with everyone else! The photos are lovely.

    I particularly love the simplicity of the photos. It really makes the smaller details stand out. Often times, those are the things we overlook.
