I say to others frequently,
"You never have seen and never will see
The trials youth afforded me"
With you this isn't so.
Together we saw many things:
The salty seas, lands vivid as dreams,
Cities great and the hopes they bring
That life now long ago.
The life we shared was split in two;
Sundered by goals clashing clans pursued
Which pocked our years with much ado
And things we dare not show.
But this I hope is evident
I harbor no quarrel or ill-intent
And long for us to, once again,
Let siblinghood here grow.
