i look at her. she's laughing.

she's happy.

oblivious, maybe, but happy nonetheless.

and when i saw her

she told me about this boy

cute, funny, perfect, the best

i looked at her

and tried so hard

to memorize that look of pure joy on her face

the one that a little girl has

when she's dreaming of her first crush

because i know

that someday,

that look will be gone

and she'll know that any guy

who's cute, funny, perfect, the best

isn't

and i don't want that.

i never want to see her hurt.

i never want to see that look,

her cute little girl smile

so full of life,

leave her face.

i never want to see her hurt.

but inside, i hurt,

because i know

that someday,

she will.


a/n: so as i was wasting my early morning hours with bejeweled blitz on facebook, this random entered my mind. it was kinda one of those "drop everything and write me now!" things, like a hostile takeover of my thoughts and actions. lol. i guess this one really wanted to be written. but yeah. come to think of it, the only time i've really heard her flip for a guy like was last year... and they're still friends, so it's no big deal. but as annoying as she is, i love my sister with all my heart, and i mean every word of this with total sincerity. i know what hurt is like. i never want her to feel it, even if i know she will. luv ya, brynnie.
