For My Sisters

For My Sisters

You’ll never have to cry alone

I’ll shed at least one tear

I’ll hug you close and feel your pain

Try to take away your fear

It was easier before

To make everything alright

One kiss would soothe a bruise

One lullaby saved the night

But now you have to face

Hardships every single day

And there’s nothing I can do

To make them go away

I’ll be there as your heart heals

I’ll be there to hold your hand

I truly know just how you feel

When no one understands

There’s no way to protect you

From the traumas that occur

No secret words to whisper

No mystic, magic cure

But if there were, I’d die for it

I’d fight and claw and scream

Just to guarantee your happiness

And the fulfillment of your dreams
