One day:

I can't remember 


Three days:

My tears fell on your hand.


Two weeks:

In school, they stare.


Six weeks:

A lonely sister on Christmas.


Four months:

Transferred schools, better tools.


Seven months: 

Planned but failed


Nine months:

Lost and faking


Twelve months:

I can breathe again


Two Years:

I can see again


Four Years:

I am older than you, brother


More years:

I will grow for you
