Sisters

I grew up next to you

I found my strength with you

We watched each other fall

And rise

And fall again

 

Your presence holds me on this earth

And without me, you wouldn’t be you

We watched each other fall

And rise

And you had to watch me not get up again

 

So what do we do now

When our faces have changed

And our minds have gone

And I’m all that you have left

But I’m not really here

You can see right through me

 

My knees ache from trying to stand

Your arms hurt from holding me up

 

I grew up next to you

I found my strength in you

But I took it all

And now we fall
