A Car Ride with My Sister
I have the windows in my car rolled down,
And I don’t care who hears me sing outside.
I glance at Ali sitting to my right
And feel my heart begin to swell with pride.
Her mouth is moving in time with the song!
I knew she liked my music all along.
I slide the volume downward bit by bit
And whisper every line so I can hear.
Her soft and tenuous voice will not commit
To singing, yet her song is high and clear.
Before, I thought that we would never have
A single thing in common. I was wrong.
Despite our different bodies, minds, and souls,
Today we share the lyrics of this song.
