What I See In You
Amy M. Kennedy

I see in you what you can not see
I see the beauty of you
I know when you're sad and when you are happy
I see how hard you try, I really do

You hide who you are
Not wanting anyone to know the real you
But I see you, a bright shining star
I am your sister, nothing can break that bond, nothing you do

I see in you, the future of tomorrow
You have dreams and goals just like all the rest
I see in you your tears and sorrow
Pretending to be tougher, feeling u have to pass some test

I see in you a woman trying to do whats right
Linda you are beautiful, you just don't know
I see in you how hard you fight
Everyday you're a part of my life, my love for you does grow

You are smart, and funny, this I too see
You can do whatever you want, be whatever you want to be
Kind and compassionate, you are these things too
You have a heart the size of Texas, I see the real you

In you I see me, or at least a part
I loved you from the moment I met you, right from the start
In you I see the beauty of each and everyday
I just want you to know I love you today and always

Amy~
What a great sis you are.
Keeping those arms wrapped around family is the most rewarding thing you'll ever do.
Love to you all.

Amy, this is such a touching poem and loving tribute to your sister. You express your dedication to her so beautifully here, and it brings such sweetness into my heart, for it reminds me very much of my own sister who died recently. She was loved by so many for her wonderful spirit and beauty, yet sometimes she failed to see it within herself. Thank you for sharing this...I love it!

Dear Aimster,
I agree with Meadowmuse. It is a wonderful tribute to your sister and what a way to show your love and appreciation to her.

A touching and beautiful ode to your sister,
it great to have a brother or sister to lean on through the good and bad. A wonderful tribute, great poem.

What a lovely tribute, Amy - I feel guilty now, here I just included my Bro in a poem and I referred to him as "nose picker!"

sunshine...you are...perfect dedication amy.
family bonds are the rings of life.
loves ya, jm




 Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-remain the most beautiful words ever heard.
