Sister From Another Mother

Sister From Another Mother

 

Nice jacket, sister

Sister from another mother

 

Did you know

Your eyes downcast

Remind me of my own

On some days

 

Your name is pretty like a flower

My middle name is a flower

Look how much we already have in common

 

Sister, sister

Spirit sister

I like your curly hair

Yours is so brown it’s almost red

Mine is really dark

 

You like to cut and sew and cook

I like to read and read a book

 

You’re more like caramel

And I’m closer to chocolate

But if we really angle our faces right

We could be look a-likes

 

You’re my sister

From another mother

We don’t have to like

Everything about each other

 

I like the fact that you’re a sister

We have more in common

Than with the brothers

Because we’re sisters

 

When we walk by each other

Spirit sister

And our eyes meet for a brief moment in time

Let’s smile like we share a secret

Like we know things others can’t

 

We’re sisters

You and me

It doesn’t matter what you don’t see

I’m you in some way

And you’re me

 

You and I are birds of a feather

So let’s stick together

Sister, sister
