I Love You Dearest Sister
Author: Shan


Growing up with you, I always had a best friend
Someone who would be there, forever until the end
I used to hold you all the time, when you were just a little baby
When you needed anything at all, you would come to me

I taught you how to ride you first bike
I made sure you knew everything would be alright
We never went anywhere without one another
Inseperable, and I wouldn't change that for anything in the world

I tried to teach you everything I knew
Things like reading, playing games and tieing your shoe
I taught you how to dress yourself, taught you how to draw
I would have taught you a lot more, if I only could have saw

Neither of us knew just how hard this life would be
Growing up together was great, I had you and you had me
But now we're older, I'm not sure where things went so wrong
I'd make everything ok, if I knew it would be like this all along

I sit here tonight and cry to myself
As I realize I'm not sure you're coming home tonight
If I could take back one thing in my life
I would take back that god awful fight

I know it's been building up for a while now
I know how hard it is to try to be someone in this world
I know you think I dont know how you feel
I hope you didn't mean it when you said you were leaving for real

I'm sheading this tear for you my sister
I'm hurting so bad because of how this all fell
I wish I could go back and fix it all
Or at least go back and see where we were going to fall

I was trying to help out, when I saw you taking the same path that I did
I know I hurt you in the past, a lot more then I could understand
I dont blame you for being mad, or not listening to any of my advise
But one thing I wish for, is for you to be alright

If what I need to do, is let you make mistakes
Then my dearest sister, the road of life is all yours
But theres one thing I will NEVER do
I will never stop being behind you

I know that I seem like the worlds biggest b*tch
I know how much you hate me sometimes
But everything I do for you is for a reason
I went through pain I never want you to experience

I dont want you to end up like me
I dont want you to follow my path anymore
I dont want you to look up to me again
I can't be your idol, please let me be a friend

I'll never stop being here for you
I'll never stop being protective
I'll never stop saying just how I feel
Because I Love You, and THAT'S for real
