 Better Together


We will always be together,

said my little sister

if she felt lonely

or if we were sad.

I would give her a hug

to comfort us both 

we will, we will.

We will always have each other

always walk together

even if broken into little pieces

even if distorted by pain

we will pick up the pieces somehow

and put them back together

even if they’re re-arranged

even if not in the same places

we will still be us

together.

But later

we forgot

and walked away

from each other.
