I Watched Her

Into the night from dark to light, working long hours, I watched her

She kisses her kids heads, as she puts them to bed, I watched her

She is a mother, someone who looks after others, I watched her

She grew up before my eyes, keeping her eye upon the skies, I watched her

She teaches her kids to fight, to never give up with all their might, I watched her. 

She is my sister, my inspirator, I watched her become the woman she is today.

I watched her.
