I am wise, because you are,
As I grew, I learnt and watched.
I am strong because you are,
Your head held up high, I followed suit.
I am a blossoming bud, and you the flower
Each day senescing, just like you have.
I know better, because of your misjudgments
Confident and astute just as you are.
You are my sister and best friend,
You epitomize a strong woman, simply because you are.
Happy Birthday Lara(08/05/2014)
