She played in a world of Barbies
He formed magical lands of Legos
They created art with crayons
and they both loved reading their books
A sister and brother
who got along quite well
They were friends to each other
It was easy to tell
Still buddies in their teens and twenties
through laughter and tears
They’re a team and always will be
into the coming years
Their alliance has sustained
through the growing, awkward ages
They defend, protect and encourage
through the turning of the pages
All the love that they share,
It’s plain to know,
will never be broken
Our Dynamic Duo

That is a wonderful feeling! Knowing that they will have one another,, watching them support one another…yet you had a hand in all this love too! Love, Linda
It is so wonderful, Linda, and I can only hope that they remain close into their futures. I suppose I had a small hand, but I’m grateful they grew up to be good, loving young adults…thanks so much, Linda! xoxo

Well, you made me smile! Sorry, I just can’t resist and looking at these photos brings a tear to my eyes, too! We’re just very lucky they are close and hope they stay close as they get older~love ya bunches! xoxo
Awww, this is beautiful! The brother I grew up with had many issues (as did I) – but I’ve always known that wherever he is, we have a bond of love that will always endure, no matter what. I’m grateful he is still in my life, and that we have found our other siblings. One is no longer with us, but the love has always been there. It’s so touching to read something like this, Lauren, you are indeed blessed. ~ Love always, Julie xoxox
Awww…Julie, I’m glad that you are both close and I’m sorry to hear about your sibling who is no longer with you, but I can feel the love you share with each one of them just through your words alone…thank you for your kind words and sending hugs! xoxo
Awww! This is a wonderful poem. I got a warm and fuzzy feeling.
Thanks so much, Kim, your comment gave me the same feeling! Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
Reminds me of how close my three children are – all adults now 🙂
So glad to hear that, Eric…my son is 17 and my daughter is 20 and I hope they’ll remain close as they get older, too~
