Proud












There was once a time when I didn't know your smile.
When your laughter didn't ring in my ears.
Thank God that time ended and we got a few good years.

I would call you family if someone asked.
"My sister", I would claim.
And though we are forced apart right now, our friendship is the same.

I am here to listen even when we cannot speak.
I will watch over you with pride
as you meet the goals you seek.

You have already grown so much.
I'm sure you could teach me a thing or two.
While others are just finding out your worth, I always knew.

You shine brighter than any star that burns
and your smile may be brighter.
If you find a day you doubt yourself, remember you're a fighter.
