To a sister,
There have been some moments that I wanted to reach out to you. I have know you only by name and by appearance, but I’ve never really known you by heart. You always cling around the shadows of your brother, ever so near, and yet it seems like you are so far away. The distant look in your eyes every time we meet hurts. Your quiet demeanor is saddening. I wanted so badly to talk Randomness with you. I wanted so badly to be able to casually say, “hey, let’s get a drink!” or “why don’t we go watch a movie?”
I want to do things every sister does with her own sister. Go shopping,get our nails done, spend hours in the salon trying on the latest hairtrends, be a crying shoulder when a boy dumps either of us and whatnots. It’s those simple things that makes caring for one more meaningful. I hope someday you will be able to return my smiles. I hope someday you will be able to recognize me. I hope someday I’ll be your keeper. I won’t promise anything but only that I will always be here if you need me.
I hope this little cry of mine will reach you, “kimi ni todoke.”
