  - For My Sister

I am one shoe,
and you are the other.
    We stay together forever and ever.
I am the sea,
and you are my sand.
My waves come to you,
as they hug you tight
with a cool breeze.
I am a shell,
and you are the one who listens
to the words of love
that are kept inside of me.
I am a butterfly,
and you are my colors.
Together we shine
    in the light of the day
and rest in the night.
