Tossing and turning all night
The night skies were black as coal
Heaven’s doors seemed shut to her
How was she to tell her loving sister
Her tears flowed freely onto the pillow
Broke her heart into smithereens

She was to accompany her sister to the airport
An elder sister, a mentor and a friend
And they grew up together as bosom buddies

They were to receive John at the airport
Only yesterday her sister had confided in her
That she just could not wait to be in John’s arms
John, their neighbor before
her sister’s childhood friend but more on
a hot and cold relationship though

John had confessed his feelings
for her barely six months ago
There should not therefore be anything
going between him and her sister
so she thought until yesterday

Her sister broke the news about John’s
homecoming and it broke her heart
For John had informed her the week before
of his homecoming himself  but never
mentioning about wanting to meet her sister

She could imagine both of them rushing
to hug him the moment he stepped into view

Must she tell her?
Must she give way?
Must she go to the airport at all?

  1. I really enjoyed this, wonder what did happen at the airport.
    well done ona super verse.

  2. that´s imagination !....nice !

  3. Could be a messy situation and drive siblings apart.

  4. Crikey! What a dilemma! And I know such things have happened, as they did in the generation before mine!

  5. Oh my, oh my my, that is a terrible heart situation.

  6. well! I'd be choosing my sister not some fly by night guy.

  7. A lovely angle explored through sibling relation. This made me emotional. yes!
