No Day Without You

I cannot remember
A day without you.
You were there
Before me,
You made my path
So much smoother.

I was younger
But often it seemed
The other way round,
I was your ears,
And your wall
Against the world.

I loved to be
By your side,
You made me
Tough and brave,
Always ready
For new horizons.

Though we are
Now far apart,
Yet still I feel
Your fine silken thread
As a comfort,
Across the miles.

Ours is a bond
Unique, everlasting,
No-one can cut
This Gordian knot,
This special kinship
Of brother and sister.
