To someone I admire:
On my first day of elementary school, going into kindergarten, you were a 5th grader. Mama asked you to find me when school let out & walk me home.
It was the end of the school day. The bell rang. I waited for you. And you found me.
Not caring what the other 5th graders thought, you took my hand & walked me home.
5 years & 9 months later I walked out of the same school as the bell rang. My last day as a 5th grader. My last day of elementary school.
I turned to walk home when I heard your voice in the distance calling my name.
I turned & there you were. Running towards me from the high school. Your last day as a sophomore.
When you reached me you were out of breath but smiling. I asked what you were doing here.
Your smile became even bigger as you said
“I walked you home on your first day of elementary school.”
You took my hand in yours
“I’m walking you home on your last day”
And you did.
We held hands the entire way home
I never looked up to anyone as much as I looked up & still look up to you.
Thank you for being the most incredible big sister.
Miss you every single day. But thankful for everyday I had with you.
Love you always, your Tay Tay
