Ode To A Sister

We knew who we were,
All those years ago,

Ragamuffin children,
Growing up as best
We could.

Got along some,
Disagreed some,
Fought some.

We knew who we were,
All those years ago.

Sheltered up together,
Learned in the same schools,
Ate off the same crockery.

We knew who we were,
All those years ago.

How many birthdays
Have now flown by?

Doesn’t matter at all,
Does it?

How far the moon?
The stars?
Or eternity?

Doesn’t matter at all,
Does it?

We knew who we were,
All those years ago,

Ragamuffin children
Finding our way,
As best we could.

Covid has passed us by,
Likewise, the measles,
mumps and chickenpox.

Doesn’t matter at all,
Does it?

We knew who we were,
All those years ago.
