Little Sister

Little Sister

Little Sister
Tonight I’ll call you as I always do
We’ll talk, say some small words and then be through.

Little Sister
You are closed down, quiet and completely unsure
Yet, so very angry, moody and totally insecure.
I wasn’t there for you when you struggled so young and all alone!
Now, I’m really nothing more than a friendly voice on your telephone.

Little Sister
You struggle, work and try hard to make desperate ends meet.
While keeping yourself sane and learning to stand on your own two feet.
You’ve been fighting off Dad, your ex and even your new beau too.
Hoping to keep your two kids happy and hold your home together with you as the glue.

Little Sister
Your moods are so drastically up and down.
All your extreme emotions swirl like a tornado destroying a town.
Amanda, Can’t I help, why don’t you even call?
Don’t you need a friend or even a Big Sister anymore at all?

Little Sister
You push, shove and hide your pain.
But you scream so hard in the pouring rain.
Your door is closed and bolted so very tight.
I promise you that you can make it and you will be all right.
I’ll call again to check and wish we could really talk
But it’s like you keep expecting me to turn around and walk.

Little Sister
You are so angry, overwhelmed and distressed
Just let life be, keep the faith and don’t regress.
Life is truly messy, unpredictable and can drive a person insane
In the end you will know that you have endured through all the adversity and pain.

Little Sister
As you work, sleep and awake each new day
I wish that I could just ease it all away.
But then in life we must each choose our own path
Learning God’s rules and bring our own happiness back.
I Love you and wish you nothing but the very best,
For what KA doesn’t fix, God will always address.

Little Sister
For each new day that dawns and all the true trials you will face
Through trouble, love and crazy pain you will learn your true place.
It is here at these crossroads at the end of an uphill sign
You will search for help and realize that I’ve been here all the time,
There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you, because, “Little Sister, I need you too!”
