This way

That way

I stretch and I bend

Through time

Through moments

Through what could have beens

I stand before you

I stand head low

Wilted and baffled

At all the wrong roads

My shoes

They walked

Your shoes

They followed

Tripping and slipping

On strength that was borrowed

I take every tear

Every accusation too

You shed them at me

I shed them for you

You are stronger than me

Both of you two

And your grace

And your beauty

I admire those too

Hand in hand

Stick together

Older and younger sister

I caution you never forget

But never look back on the winter
