How do you put into words how much someone means to you?
How they are appreciated
How they are adored
How they are selflessly there, always
How they are loved

How do I tell you you're the best someone anyone could ever have? How do I tell you that even though I tried so hard, not to be like you, there isn't anything in the world I would love, than to be more like you?
Educated in such a way that it always makes me shake my head with a smile and think, "She's the smartest person in the world.....and she's my sister"

She's the one who everyday balances her array of lives:
A mother,
A daughter
A student
A teacher
A friend
A leader
and among all of these time to be my sister.

You are the one whom I compare to nothing, as there isn't a way to calculate, measure or title your gift.
I love you for every role you play

How do you tell someone how much they have shaped you, taught you, loved you and been exactly what you've needed, every time?

You don't, they just know

A Matter of When

I thought it was the opening up that worried me.
I thought it would be the letting you in.
Making room for things that weren't mine.
Making space.
I thought it was letting the walls down and allowing vaulnerability.
I thought it was the commitment, or learning to love someone new.
It isn't.
It's losing it
