The Rush


I loved that day
That particular moment
Ponytail blowing in the wind
The sun warming my skin
Shorts and my favorite aqua shirt
And your giggling and screaming
Your begging to slow down
But I just speed up, legs feeling so free
In the woods, fresh air through my lungs
Running so fast
I washed it out
Because you said it was to dirty
So I used the hose
To wash the dirt and grim
I dried it
And you jumped in
I took you for a spin
Around grandma’s house
All I recall
Is the smile on your face
Us bonding as twins
And above all
I remember
The Rush


Distance: The Finale


It’s been over 11 years
Despite my greatest fears
That she’s gone so far away
At home she cannot stay
I miss her laughter and her grin
And to my great chagrin
I miss just walks with her through the neighborhood
She’s moved out and happy as can be
And me?
I’m so happy she found true love and joy
She is not a toy
To be passed around
To just toss to the ground
She’s a human being and through thick and thin
She truly loves me
She’s my sister, my twin
And together we will always win
So although distance separates us we are never really apart
Because we are bond together by the love in our heart
