I wrote this poem for my sister simply because I miss her. We live on opposite sides of the country and on this particular day I was feeling really shitty about the time lost between us when so many life changing events are take place.

I wanted to write you for no other reason,
then to tell I love you and it's you I am missing. 
It's those three little words I dont say too often,
but I need you to know that I havnt forgotten. 
There are days that I wander where the time has gone,
and all that iv missed being so far from home . 
Moments when I'm lonely and often shed a tear,  
thinking of my family wishing they were here. 
And while I know what is for certain,
and likely not to change.
Is the distance that's between us,
getting harder every day.
I will never let that stop me from always being there,
to remind you its the little things I do because I care.  
How I wish I could be there to rub your growing belly, 
laugh with you and cry with you on this wonderful journey.

See you hold that baby and your whole world change.
This is what I long for while I'm so far away. 
But let this be an I owe you for all the time we've lost. 
And remember that a sisters bond
Can never be forgot.
