like a sister

i wish you could just listen
and put down your hand
instead of repeating your point
as if i didn’t understand

i get what you’re saying
i appreciate your concern
but pushiness isn’t helpful
something you need to learn

you’re dismissive of my reasoning
you always think you know better
but i know that you don’t
and all i can think is –forget her

you’re always the first one
to bail out on plans
but then feel abandoned whenever someone
doesn’t lend you a hand

i know you mean well
you have trouble showing it
it’s the way you speak to people
that just doesn’t fit

you always try to be helpful
and you’re fiercely loyal
but you can also come off
as ridiculously spoiled

but i know how you are
just like you do me
we get over and move on
it’s how we’ve learned to be

cause you and i have been through
so much together
all that’s happened since i moved here
it feels like forever
theres hardly a memory i have
that you don’t also remember

and i love you like a sister
you’re a part of me
and i know that’s the way
that it will always be
