My Big sister
|For as long as I remember there always two constants in my life, three when our youngest sister was born.
My siblings and I have always been close, there for each other whenever we needed each other.
My earliest memories filled with love and laughter. My older sister (Ate in Tagalog-Philippines) Carmen was the one that I idolized.
I remember always following her around. I was in awe of you, wishing to be with you all the time.
I remember mom would sew us identical dresses, I would complain but inside I was ecstatic. I loved it, it made me feel closer to you.
I remember when you and I took part of a parade in our town. I was a princess. You were the queen. So beautiful and elegant. My wish was to be like you.
You showed me as we grew older together, how to be me. I turned to you during my darkest days. You were always there for me with open arms.
I only hope that I can stay strong for you now and always. I love you Ate ko.
