Little Sister

Photo by Anton Luzhkovsky

I am forty-five and I am the big sister of my youngest self.

I defy the laws of time

to whisper in your ear

that you are not alone.

I visit your soul in moments of despair,

when you've been so hurt

that you wish you'd just disappear.

I am here to tell you how beautiful you are.

There is equal light to the darkness you witness.

Be patient, you are stronger than you can imagine.

And the day will come

when you will shine so bright

that only love will remain.
