To My Sister

by Anna Bell Chapa, CCWF
If I could give you
half of my health, I would.
If I could get you home
and do your time, I would.
If I could give you
the love only a mother could, I would.
Really would…
If I had two wishes
One would be for you and my mom
To regain your health.
The second would be for me to be
     A better person
     A better friend
     A better sister, with better feelings
And a lot more patience.
