(Move from Albuquerque to Dayton, 2015)
Sigh of relief as I arrive to my final destination
Sister guiding me via phone to the Kroger
Where she is waiting...
Broadly smiling with a man named Mark.
Lou filmed our Reunion
In slow motion, sister love
Sure as the thick red blood running
Through our veins connecting our DNA
Differences in style, personality
And preferences will never supercede
The bonds of our shared ancestry,
Shared life experience and enduring love
Blood truly is thicker than water
In this case it is true and I am grateful.
