They trusted you first
Five-year-old hands too small

They handed me to you
You reached out, accepting the call

A pact made before we had language
A journey started before we could adventure
A love before understanding
A best friend before and for life

Before I could speak
You were my voice

Before I knew
You could tell

Before I could fall
You held my hand

Before I could swim
You taught me to float

Time flew
We grew

You into your role
Me into mine

Sisters in body and soul
A bond that defies rhyme

    1. My sister and I wrote our poems together. My sister made glyphs around words that have resonated with her and we randomly chose a glyph for each poem we wrote. This poem was based on the word/glyph ‘Trust’.
