To my brother

Maybe it's selfish of me.
But I feel really guilty.
I was such a horrible sister to you.
I pushed you away.
I never tried to know you or love you.
I only thought of myself.
I was not what you deserved as a big sister.
I love you just the way you are.
But you have a hard way about you.
Did I make you that way?
If I had loved you more and been a decent person to you would you have kept your gentle spirit?
I'm so sorry.
I will carry that guilty with me all my life.
But I want you to know that I decided a long time ago.
That I would love you no matter what.
That I would lift you you up when I could.
That I would help you.
That I would never hurt you again if I could.
That I would be there for you always.
I'm not perfect.
I was and still am a very broken person.
But I will try Jr to be who I should have been to you from the start.
Love you dearly brother.
