she wants to be a
gymnast. 
and she is beautiful,
blonde hair and shining eyes
that could hold the world
even when she cries.

she leaves the imprint 
of the side of her hood
on the window of my car, 
and i watch her fiddle
with her thumbs
as the heater groans and hisses
her hair away from her face.

streetlights 
fall onto the seat and
i wonder if she knows
how badly i wish she could be a
gymnast, how much i wish
she hadn't broken her
arm last year, 
how much i want to take away the memories
of our mother staggering 
and how much i love her.

i can't hold the world in my eyes,
but i can hold her,
which is about the same thing.
to my little sister- because she is my world, like it or not.

A sweet, charming and alluring poem. You are lucky to have each other. Treasure each moment - even if that means writing poetry. A lovely read. Thankyou for sharing.
