"I Just Wish She Knew..."

(haiku)

by: shattered teardrops

--

My practiced smile fixed

in place as I watched her go

she's leaving me soon

--

We grew as siblings

And stood firm with each other

we're unbreakable

--

Together we grew

Shared memories so special

Now, she needs to go

--

Even though it's hard

To set her free and go

I need to do this

--

I'll let her go

And let her soar on her own

Though it brings great pain

--

I'll just sit and smile

As I say "good-bye, sister"

Good-bye, you're free now

--

My heart is in pain,

in unuttered agony

yet I smile at her

--

It's her wedding day

And it's my heart's funeral

But I have to smile

--

I'll keep my secret,

My most well-guarded secret

'Til the day I die

--

My adopted sister

I'm deeply in love with her

I just wish she knew...
