Together

Three siblings
together for awhile
to love, to laugh, and to smile.

Together to share stories,
to share secrets.

Together to be there for a sister
as she tells their parents
she will not return to college.

Together to celebrate
the youngest sister’s eighteenth birthday.

Together to laugh at
the memories of each other
at a younger age
and a simpler time.

When the boy lived at home
the first sister got straight A’s
and the youngest still believed in cooties.

Together to take in the rolling mountain view
that has become the boy’s home.
And will soon become home to the eldest sister.

Together to be a family.
If only for awhile,
to love, to laugh, and to smile.
