For My Sister..........Or actually a friend who could have been my little sister.....!

Broken pieces of pottery in the New Mexico desert ......
Broken pieces of pottery in the New Mexico desert ......

You know I'm your big brother come over
here put your head right here on my
shoulder

Cry , cry.... go ahead and get it all out
I''m not going anywhere
soon

Baby girl needs a safe place to fall
A big hug and to dry
those tears

And you know I don't have
the answers......... no ....and only a sad
smile for you

And yet we can do this ........we can get
through this
why ...because I love you
right here .......right now

This is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I have found that it is rare nowadays for siblings to be as close as in my family, so it's so beautiful to find a brother that loves his sister so much. I definitely am sharing this!

Hi ahorseback.

Beautiful words to your sister. All sisters would be very happy if they had a brother like you, unfortuately that isn't always so.

Very sweet and beautiful. I have two big brothers. Both of them love me, and care about me very much. Had to vote this hub up.

Aw this is so sweet. Voted up and beautiful. But why the pic of the broken pottery in New Mexico? Are you talking about the love one has for their state? I was going to say that this poem expresses the love between a brother and sister very well.

I've offered a shoulder to cry on from time to time. Not only did it make that person feel much better, but it helped me as well. We all need a shoulder to cry on from time to time and I'm happy to read that you offered yours to your little sister. I hope she had a good one and got it all out and the both of you are feeling much better.

That doesn't take away the beauty of this piece :D I feel that family is not the ones you are born into, but the ones you choose to love. And even with the ones we choose to love, there is still some sort of wall there. I have seen friends tear each other apart. So I still love this hub! :D

I don't know how many little sister friends you have Ed, but if I am one of them then I thank you with all my heart for the big brother shoulder you provide to me, and my sisters. You have an enormous heart and capacity to help others heal with your love. So this little sister says "thank you" for all your love and support and for being a beautiful big brother. Hugs to ((((You)))) from Annie.
