I searched and searched for something
To give you on your special day ..
But nothing was quite good enough
Or not the words I wanted to say!
I looked in the stores to find
That perfect little gift ..
Something very special
To give your heart a lift.
I looked in the dept stores
And wondered what to do ..
Nothing there could come close
To being special enough for you.
I looked in all the papers
I even looked on line ..
Praying that somewhere
A special gift for you I’d find.
Then I felt a gentle nudge
That gave me quite a start ..
Twas if a voice had said to me
“Look within your heart!”
So I looked inside my heart
At all the memories there ..
Of all the wonderful loving
Memories that we share.
And I came up with this little verse
That is so simple, yet so true ..
The best thing about being your sister
Is that for a sister/brother I have you.
