Oldest Child Bonds

The day grows long
Seems it will never end
But I welcome the time just with you
You glance up at me
We share a 'moment'
Your trusting eyes mirror my blue

We've shared our days
Ever since you were born
I promised I'd always be there
But I spoke in haste
Not knowing the future
Not suspecting the suffering we'd share

But share it we did
More than most siblings do
I tried to take your burdens too
Being young and naive
And loving you as I did
I did my best to protect me AND you

As I'm watching you now
I see how brave you are
You came out of your childhood so strong
We've begun a new journey
Loving every step
But there's always been one place we belong:

With each other.
