While I am here at school so far away from where you are, I miss you so deeply and long for long laughs with you
And count down the days until I can see you
And just be with you
-And be ourselves in our own special way
I miss watching cartoons with you on Saturday mornings
And playing in the sandbox at our old house
Or cuddling with you on rainy days
When time stood still
And we were so young
Lucky that I have my other half around
I long for letting a day go by and sitting with you in the sun
Listening to our favorite songs over and over again
And looking over to see my sister belting out the words
Usually telling me to "be careful", "slow down", and that "driving really isn't your thing"
I miss you telling me about your day…. the Ups the Downs and beyond
On the daily, until I left for school
The tales the dreams the daily updates
That just don't feel the same being said over the phone
I miss running over to your room and flopping down on your bed
Joking about this, "try that on", "Will you pay me to clean your room?", "Can I Borrow this Instead?"
I know I can be busy and caught up with a busy life in the city
And at college and with this or that and the other thing Or "I'll call you in 5" Or "I can talk more tomorrow"
But not a day goes by without you on my mind
And I cherish the little talks and moments we have always
I want to thank you for the love and the strength and joy
That you bring to my life every day
The memories, the current moment, the future, the happiness.
I want you to know that through it all I will always have your back
Near or far
Through easy or difficult times
Like you have always been there for me
Counting down the days until I can see you again-
Love, Your Big Sister
