All snuggled up together, feeling the warmth and comfort of each other in the big bed.
The trust and love of brothers and sisters without ever needing to be said.
Fights and name calling, having fun and playing silly games, keeping each other's secrets and acting out school on rainy days.
Being in trouble with Mom and Dad telling tales and feeling sad.
The safety of knowing where you're from then the sudden realization that childhood has gone.
But it then goes into reverse and brother/sisters such a curse
The boys and girls go separate ways, only dreams of fun filled days
Both sets of friends, objects of desire, and both camps set out to conspire then jealousy does overtake, inevitably hearts are bound to break.

All older now and visits home, hard to think where we once were known
Questions asked, polite inquires made some have moved some have stayed
then suddenly the cat walks by and someone starts to snicker, remember that toy gun we had who was it pulled the trigger? The poor cat remembers this time and waddles out then like old times we scream and shout
erupting with laughter from deep within from years ago, again we're kin
remembering when and this and that and not forgetting tortured cats the bonds are formed again once more and will remain forever we leave arranging the next time we'll be together

As a maudlin' older sister... I like to reminisce when sending birthday cards to my brothers. I happily (surrealy) connected to this poem and its special meaning & the bond that I & my brothers will always have. Even if the times spent with them are few... when we do get together we reminisce about the good ole days more & more especially as we've gotten older. Thank you for bringing this special bond to light & with its remembrances of our good times long ago. :)
