To My Second Sister

You have always been there

Ever since I can remember

From having someone to play dolls with

To telling you my troubles

Growing up together you have influenced me

In such a way you are like a second sister

Every time I see you I always see the familiar

The short hair and dark colors of your clothes

I can confide in you for whatever

To offer me advice

Or to tell you my secrets

You have always been there

From the good times full of laughter

And smiles

To the tougher times with tears

You have shown me to be stronger

Have set an example to follow

You have a sarcastic personality like

Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh

And we share a humor

That is demonstrated when

We watch our favorite show, Brooklyn 99

Our laughter booming throughout the house

It sounds like howling

As time has passed we have grown closer

While others have distanced themselves

I can only expect for you to continue to

Offer me advice as we keep growing

Never faltering and maintaining to be

Someone I look up to

You have always been there for me

Dedicated to my cousin

This poem is full of love! It's a very relatable poem because some people have best friends that are like family to them. This poem warms my heart.
