A poem for my youngest sister, who is 17 years young.
To my baby sister,
Whose beauty knows no bounds,
The brilliance you hold inside you,
Has the ability to dumbfound;

You are so young and carefree,
But your soul is old and wise,
It terrifies and delights me,
To see myself in your eyes;

I'm delighted because you're perceptive,
You feel as much as you see,
I'm terrified because you're too trusting,
I know that you would agree;

The world can be so cruel and daunting,
You are growing up too fast,
I wish it'd never show it's ugly face,
I wish the innocence would last;

I want you to know I am so proud;
What a woman you're going to be!
Just enjoy your innocence a bit longer,
For a while please remain free;

The world as I said can be scary,
Sometimes -no- most times, unfair,
But in a few years you will face life on your own,
Just know I will always be there.
