A Sister Like Mine

I laughed and said, "life is easy."

            She's the person who knows me inside and out. She’s the person who reads my thoughts just by the way I move my eyes, and she knows the shape my mouth takes when I’m about to tell her the best story.  She knows that when I’m silently laughing, making no noise at all, it means nothing has ever been funnier. She’s the person who has seen me at my complete worst, and who has also seen me higher than heaven. She’s covered for me more times than I can count, and she's given me the cold hard truth when I really needed it. She knows my entire life’s story, down to the detail of the time first she saw me to the exact words she spoke to me when she drove away in the U-Haul to go start her life in Tennessee. I have never been more proud of anyone, ever. She’s my best friend in the entire world, and somehow I got blessed to also call her my sister. I’m beyond excited that she’ll be home on Wednesday, and I can already feel the butterflies getting ready to take flight in my stomach. My life just makes more sense when we are together. Somehow, when I'm with her, my whole world just aligns.
 What I meant was, life is easy with you here, and when you leave, it will be hard again.
