For My Sister

You were 15 years older than I.
We didn't really grow up together,
yet, in my heart,
you were always there.
Fingers of my memory
quilt through a patchwork of time,
gently caressing our yesterdays
with love.
Fine threads needle through
treasured moments,
moments as soft as spring rain.

In my youth you were my favorite sister,
and time has made no alterations.
