You deserve much more than this...
and so much more than what I am.

I have trouble giving gifts--

there is no thing

no ribbon's twist

that could convey the emptiness

I feel when thinking of the bliss

the comfort of the telephone

and yeah, that fierce protective fist

(you always take good care of me)

and oh I pity the poor fool

who dares to try to wish me harm
for you, my sis, are my strong-arm;

I'm only here 'cause you exist.

Your face, your ways, your strength is this:

so much more than I deserved.

I do not know what might have been
without your presence by my side.
I wish I'd bought you handkerchiefs,
for all the tears of mine you've dried.

You are amazing, treading paths,
stomping twice so I could have

the luxury of confidence
following you through life.

I would have died by now, I think.
so thank you for the sacrifice
that you made with loyalty--
forever sisters, we'll be three.

A celebration's trinity

sister Hood, and that is us...

we were

we are

a woman's club

and membership is closed.

* * *

Happy Birthday!

And yes, yes, I'm crying again...sigh...


AND? an explantion regarding the "empty bliss"--my sister hates telephones. *laughing* And I love 'em.

So she tolerates me. I love you, twist.

You'll never know the significance of your poem. My last read on this site; copied for three special ladies.
And,
As I drift off in cyberspace
I leave this kiss upon your face... x

Twist...I only know you through your Sister...
who has been such to me. Happy Birthday, girl,

and I can identify with the telephones!
Truly!

smile...I hope everybody wishes her good health--she is truly amazing.

I want her to remember, we're supposed to live a very long time, and be weird cat lady witches together. (As opposed to being weird cat lady witches apart--and oh, I pray she reads this and it makes her snort her drink through her nose!)

Now that's love, eh?

*chortles and chuckles*




And thank you all, for stepping up to wish a wonderful woman a happy day.

"I wish I'd bought you handkerchiefs,
for all the tears of mine you've dried."

My younger sister and I could both say this to each other. This made me teary eyed because the bonds we make are so strong.. and I miss my sister. Thanks for sharing this.

My birthday wishes for Twist are belated... but that just keeps the party going, right? *S*

Happy Birthday, Twist... may your year be filled with love, laughter and a wealth of good health. *S*

Beautiful gift, serenity... for Twist but to us all. *S*

She always knows, my sister does, and she did it again today.



I love you, my sister.
