Happy Birthday Hoe! (a day later)

In 1978,
when I was only four,
I made it around the block
to knock on your door.

"Do you have any girls?"
I asked your mother,
One girl stepped aside
so I could see the other.

This 'other' girl was my age,
as far as I could tell,
She wasn't shy by any means
and that would serve her well.

We became friends that day,
never looking back,
Through good and bad, thick and thin,
that was our pact.

Our siblings were mean,
our parents were strict,
But together we'd make it,
from barbies to girls scouts to di... (Oh, how inappropriate!)

She has always been fabulous,
reaching for the stars,
I never doubted her making it,
going oh so far.

She is not my sibling,
but she is my sister.

Always and forever, through thick and thin, I will be by your side.

I love you Hoe! Happy Birthday!
