Look at And Comprehend the Meaning of Friendship, There's No Friend Quite like an Older Sister by Nicholas Gordon.
There's No Friend Quite like an Older Sister
There's no friend quite like an older sister.
Often when I rummage through our lives,
Memories like orange-colored lanterns
Yield your face, gold against the darkness.
So many times you were what I would be,
Initiating dreams that now are me,
Showing me my youth in all its starkness,
Treating with soft charm my fiercest phantoms.
Each time I think of you, my smile revives,
Recalling when I was your little blister.
