This One's For My Sisters

i've thought much of you today
   though the distance between us is miles away
   i've held you close to my heart ... kept you in my prayers
   hoping that our God keep you always safe

praying you have not forgotten 
   our funny childhood games
   nor the way we stuck together
   against the rain and pain

when you see your growing children
   may they remind you some of me
   our strong sisterhood bond
   the laughs that made us cry

i know we have changed
   and we've grown worlds apart
   but I just wanted to say
   a hello from the heart
 i promise not to forget you
   i'm blowing kisses in the wind
   and when they get to where you are
   may you know they are from me
