I never thought I’d say some things I did.
For one I never thought I’d call you “sis”.
I never thought I’d show interest
in anything that you liked or did.
But here I am.
Your younger brother, even if only in law.
That you accept me at all is enough to ask for.
My secret weapon, and a lighter, taller me.
You’re the lamest dude I ever met
but still the coolest guy to me.
I wouldn’t call you lazy but if your interest isn’t there
It doesn’t matter what it is. You just don’t care.
You got to get over man.
I mean you’ve got years to do it.
But sometimes the simplest answer to things
isn’t just to say screw it.
Regardless you’re brighter than I think you even know yet.
Can’t wait to see your potential come into fruition.
The quiet one. At least when I’m around.
You’re also the artistic one.
Art comes in many forms
and you’ve found one you’re passionate for.
Dance is something that lights up your eyes.
I noticed that when we met in real life.
And it didn’t take long to realize
that we share a common goal.
See yours again comes in the form of dance.
The motions. The performance. The feeling.
Whatever it is that does it for you.
Your goal is to collect that emotion
in every set, dive and motion.
I do the same in poetry. Thats my art.
I’m happy to see you so young following your heart.
You’re an interesting man,
and one I can definitely respect.
I may not agree with all your decisions
but I’m on the outside looking in.
I see the Job you’re doing with your kids
and how you all have let me in.
I try my best not to overstep boundaries
and appreciate the love I’ve been given.
But as the man of the house
I give a particular thanks to you.
You viewed me, conversated and I’m sure
questioned the relationship she and I shared.
With myself being states away
and her being here.
Yet when we met you decided I was okay to let around your family.
You don’t understand what that means to me.
That is the first and only time
I will be calling you by your first name.
You’ve brought my favorite human being into this world.
But you’re a close second for giving me your little girl.
Since we’ve met I’ve been treated as nothing less
than a son to you.
That may not be a big deal to you
but I’m old fashioned in case you can’t tell.
The small things mean the most.
I truly think you’ve done a great job.
I’m definitely glad to add you to my list of moms.
