My sister

My sister was weak in a snowball fight,
she curled beside me when she had a bad dream.
We used to share secrets,
laughed together at silly things.
She was always the younger part of me,
we played together,
she liked basketball.
I trained her to excel at the sport,
she was so proud seeing her picture
of the winning team in the paper.
All grown up she is my beacon,
always there if I am in a rough spot.
She is the only family worth having,
thanks, sister,
thanks a lot.
