Happy Birthday Sista!

Happy birthday, dear Sista...
You were my best friend 
long before the Mista.
And sometimes you still are..
But don't tell him...
cuz he still thinks he's the star.
You were my first girl friend
and whenever I had a broken heart 
  you made me laugh
and it would always mend.

There were days that we would disagree
and get into a fight,
But all would be forgotten
once you admitted that
that I was always right.

You've carried a cup
that was always half-full,
Mine was perpetually half-empty
and that's no bull.

Who cares if Mom loved you the best?
It's only because she was terrified 
that I would never leave the nest.

So what if Dad said 
your temperament was sunnier?
My French teacher told me that
my accent was funnier.

We've had our laughs 
at the expense of Mom and Dad...
especially when we were single
 and each had our own pad.

You were always there 
even when I lived far away...
And that's why February 26th
 is my favorite day.
That was the day 
that I met my best friend.
And I will love you forever
until the bitter end! 

For anyone who was not fortunate enough to grow up with our beauty... I am the statuesque one featuring the new breast buds and beautiful long legs worthy of the Rockettes.  Sista is giving that sly smile knowing that she looks cuter and that this photo will go down in history.

Dear Sista,
Happy Birthday to you!
You look like a monkey
and smell like one, too!
