Happy Birthday, Dear Sister

When we were young I knew you well.
You cared for me and I could tell.
The love we shared was like a spell,
it ran its course, then apart we fell.

I wish I could tell you that I still care.
My better judegment heeds beware.
I'd like to think that you're still there,
my once dear sister, life's not fair.

Today's your birthday, I wish you well.
Your sense of self has gone to hell.
I'd tell you I love you if only it were so,
though whom you've become, I do not know.

I could harbour guilt for shutting you out,
blame myself, give benefit of doubt.
You've fooled me one too many times,
I'll never again trust your blatent lies.

I'm sure with time you'll change again.
I'm sure someday you'll need a friend.
You had a brother who loved you so,
now a brother whom you'll never know.
