Sister (The Poem)
This poem was written on January 21, 2009. It was merely a week and a half after I was lucky enough to meet my four half-siblings, for the first time!
You can read my "Dad didn't know I was his...." hub for the whole story, but I wrote this to my new sister (she's the only sister, other three are brothers). Her and I had several personal, emotional, deep conversations and this is what I took back from our time together. This trip changed my life forever and I will never look back on the person that I was before.
Sister (The Poem)
As a little girl, did you imagine
You had a sister you could call
Would you dial your plastic telephone
And yell, "brother took my ball!"
Did you pretend that your sister
Would stand right up for you
She'd get that ball back from the boys
And give them a "talking to"
Would she brush your hair and talk to you
About what you love and hate
And did she have "the talk" with you
Before you went on your first date
Did she tell you that you were beautiful
Even when you had the flu
Could she put a smile upon your face
When you were feeling blue
Well here we are as sisters
A dream of ours, come true
Forget the moments that we've lost
Now you've got me, and I've got you
I don't intend to let another day
Go by without our family intact
As sisters we can show the world
"Those Derksen girls don't look back"
So you and I can share our dreams
And brush each others hair
Or sip coffee and play with our children
Anything....I will be there!!
