    Miss A

    you know I love you,
    and my skills are limited
    in self-expression because
    I never had it like you

    But I have your love in
    return, and in that way
    I have it so much better
    than anyone

    Everyone thinks they know you
    You have a way with people
    that makes them feel so
    comfortable in your presence

    And I smile when I see you
    work the crowd~ your charm
    reminds me of why I want
    to be like you

    I talk too much
    You know how to say it
    without wasting a word

    I speak too loud
    Your soft voice makes
    the room grow quiet
    just to hear your words

    I use bad English
    cuss like a sailor
    and you smile & even
    laugh when I
    do ~ cuz you feel me

    That's how you are
    my sister...

    you let me be who I be

    and I don't have to
    have it like that
    the way you do

    I got the real ****

    ~you~
