How often I asked
Just one brother
Just one.

But time and again
Always sisters
Two.

Now as I survey the people that have surrounded me
Surprises
Man after man

Each one teaching me
How to love
How to care
How to respect
In friendship

Brothers I asked for
Friends I got
Not biological
But brothers through and through

How often I complained
Why only sisters?
Why?

But, here I sit
In awe
Loved.

By brothers
I didn’t realize I’d acquired
What beauty in the unexpected answer
