On Pedestals (Revised)


I reserve a special place for the admiration felt
for my big brothers when small, the only older
children I knew they seemed like gods on earth;
when they played with us toddlers it was as if the
sun came out, when they recounted tales of their
adventures my admiration knew no bounds

Today I am glad I learned what such high feeling
is before tackling the world; an absolute love and
sisterly admiration nothing can stop, whenever it
wells up and floods my being with that wonderful
emotion I enjoy it unconditionally, though it may
at times irritate my elder siblings

It’s a privilege for me to offer sisterly affection, to
keep them on pedestals, a feeling more precious
than any fallibility of purest faith, I love untainted
admiration which makes me see rainbows, feel
warmth inside for no other reason than knowing
they are alive and mine to love!

Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
