I had a best friend.

Who, was my sister in a different life.

I loved her.

Grateful for the moments we would spend together.

Basking in each others company, characters & differences.

We grew up.

She went to live her life.

As I did, mine.

I continued to love her from afar.

Allowing her to spread her wings.

I suddenly stopped being a witness to her unfolding life.

And was forced to accept,

that i may never, during this lifetime, set me eyes on her face.

Occasionally, I dreamt of meeting her again.

Just so i could see her face.

And, she mine & all the love I still held for her.

With no hope of finding her.

I prayed for her safety, success & peace.

Allowing her to become a memory.

I passed her on.

In the hope the univers would be as kind to her, as it has been for me.

My sister.

My love for you, will never fade.
