Once there were two sisters
As close as can be
Who laughed and played day by day
Their lives filled with glee

Throughout the years of childhood
The sisters stayed as one
They went through the good and bad
And always had tons of fun

But then one day these two sisters
Wound up in a fight
They yelled and screamed at one another
All throughout the night

These sisters had promised never to
One another alone
But some promises just can’t be kept
And both sisters were left on their own

The sisters waited night and day
For their best friend to return
But soon the lone sisters realized
Their friendship would soon adjourn

Years went by with the two sisters
Saying nothing at all
To the best friend they had once trusted
To be there when tears would fall

Both of the sisters missed the other
But were too scared to say
For fear of having the other one
Turn the other away

But both those girls wanted to fix
The friendship that they’d broken
They just weren’t sure what to say
For they’d gone too long unspoken

And then one day both sisters
Realized their mistake
And called each other on the phone
Putting their sisterhood at stake

As the buzzing of the phone rang out
Both sister’s hearts beat faster
With shaking hands they answered the phone
And hoped for no disaster

And those two sisters got their wish
For no disaster occurred
Instead they listened to one another
Though at first no one uttered a word

But after some time they grew braver
And shared what they had thought
For the ten years they had not spoken
After that horrid night they’d fought

For hours the two girls talked and laughed
Sharing memories from over the years
And when they hung up and said good-bye
Their eyes were filled with tears

The next day the two girls made a promise
That this time they wouldn’t forget
They vowed to stay friends and sisters
Until the sun and the moon have met

I wrote this about the power of sisterhood, inspired by both my younger and older sister who I can't imagine my world without.
