Reminder To A Sister

The binding love of a sister
No other love can match its strength
No denying, we are as one
Living two lives with one heart beat

No other love can match its strength
As children with clasped hands we grew
Each day treasuring each moment
Enjoying the other’s presence

No denying, we are as one
Treasuring each other’s great joys
Sharing moments of elation
Thankful for what life provided

Living two lives with one heart beat
But joined to face those who bring strife
As one we stand, loyal to all
Who fight for that which is the right

Retourne: A Retourne is a French poetry form wherein repetition is used, employed. It consist of four quatrains (four-line stanzas), with each line having eight syllables. The trick is though that the first stanza’s second line must also be the second stanza’s first line, the first stanza’s third line is the third stanza’s first, and the first stanza’s fourth line is the fourth stanza’s first.
