My Sister and Best Friend

Happy birthday to my big sis – P.G.
Oh, what a blessing you have been to me.

From childhood to teens and all the years through,
You’ve been my role model, I’ve always looked up to you.

You’ve never once lectured me when I started to stray,
But loved me like Jesus who’s the Truth and the Way.

Looking back on my life, God’s helped me to see,
Without you, my sister, I don’t know where I would be.

When deep in my depression and I couldn’t understand
You were always there to listen, gently holding my hand.

When I think of you, dear sister, the words that come to mind
Are: gentle, loving, patient and kind.

So, thank you, dear Lord, for my sister and best friend,
And a bond that cannot be broken and a love that has no end.
