The Sweetest Sister Ever: A Poem For Amy

some day mom will get "chin down eyes up"
some day mom will get "chin down eyes up"

I am so blessed to have such an amazing sister. Not only is she my sister, but one of my best friends. She is so sweet, kind, sensitive, and generous. She has one of the most compassionate hearts that I know of. She's always ready to help another out. She feels others' pain and cries with them when they cry--and laughs with them when they laugh. She is also totally funny! I have countless memories of laughing and goofing around with my sister. Amy, want to do a little "super spy?" :-)


This is the one with tears of love,

With words that express the Father above.

Hands that help because of a heart that beats,

With love for each one she sees on the streets.

Sensitive and sweet, and full of compassion,

She cares for her family, with dedication and passion.

Amy, the little peanut, all grown up tall (or perhaps still quite small),

With her own little peanut to love, so sweet and so small!

Merry Christmas Amy!

Love, Jenna

@breakfastpop: Thanks so much. I really try to appreciate my relationships because I know they won't last forever--life has taught me about its fragility. Take good care.

@ Brett.Tesol: Thank you! Yes, I am quite blessed. The only problem with our family being so close, is that we don't really want to stick around in IL but nobody wants to move away from the family so we just stay here in the flat state. :-) LOL Thanks so much for sharing, too!

@ learner365: Thanks for the vote up! It's so nice to have relationships based in unconditional love. I appreciate your comment!
