My Sister Is My World
By: Diana Marmolejo
I can’t even begin to explain how much you mean to me. You’ve been my bestie since diapers, my personal therapist, and my own makeshift superhero boyfriend when I need rescuing.
For that, I promise...
I'll pick up the phone, 2 pm or 2 am, when you call me bringing good news, bad news, or anything in between I'll listen.
To always be by your side. I will laugh and celebrate your victories with you, and I will also cry for your losses with you.
I will be there for you to remind you of who you are, and if need be, to pick you back up. I’ll never stand by and watch you fall, I’ll always be the one waiting to catch you.
I will be your biggest supporter, regardless of whether I'm in the room next to you, or a thousand miles away.
And I will always believe in you. In your goals, in your dreams, in your vision. You that you can handle what life throws at you, and much more, I know it.
I will never be anything but honest with you, even if it hurts. Not because I want to hurt you, but because I only want the best for you.
To make time for you even in the busiest of months. Even as we get older and our lives get more hectic, I promise if you need me, I'll be there.
To be on the couch with you watching every Hallmark Christmas movie and enjoying every second of it. Because let's be honest, who doesn't?
Just know, I’ll always be there, period. Maybe not literally, but no matter where I am, no matter where you are, I will never be more than a phone call away.
I’d give anything to sit with you over good food and drinks and reminisce on all the good times we've had as we grow older.
But above all, I promise to always love you, completely and unconditionally. There’s not a thing you could confess you would make that would make me love you less.
Because I know you'd do anything for me in a heartbeat because I know you're my biggest supporter, my sister, my best friend.
