My Sister ~ Banele Kubheka

From the same womb
We were conceived
From the same breast
We fed.

So alike do we look
I was once called yours
So alike do we think
Every time an ultimatum comes up
I know exactly what you would have chosen.
So alike do we act
You would swear we were twins.

When I am in need
You are always beside me
When I am feeling down
Your motivational pep talk is always appreciated
When I am upset
I think only of you and my day is made

Hear me now
Let your problems be mine
For help is always at hand
Let your joys be mine
So we may enjoy each other’s company.

By blood
You are my sister
But by heart
You are the better me.
