Her minds' reeling and hearts' racing like never before

Trying to understand exactly what she'd ever done to him

That is if she's ever even done anything to this horrid person

She knows that for some strange reason that in the eyes of the law they are blood kin

Her memories of those first years of life are lost forever

And she can't understand why he hates her so much

He's supposed to be her brother yet he's never given suffice reason for her to call him such

Her heart aches to know how this gaping rift could ever heal

When had things gone so sour between brother and sister?

Maybe he'd never given her a proper reason to call him 'brother'

Or had the rift been caused by the family being torn apart?

Is she blamed for the family being separated all those years ago?

Does he know she never asked to live with her Daddy at all?

That had happened while she was staying with her Daddy on holidays

It as such a short time with him and he was ill the whole time

He'd only wanted his daughter to be by his side in his last years of life

She'd brought happiness and light into a dying man's life

Could he really hate her for something so simple and touching?

All she ever wanted was a proper big brother in her life

A brother to love and protect her as she grew from child to woman

A brother who she could run to when the world was scary

Who would offer her shelter from all of life's storms

Someone who would listen and understand all her problems

Who would offer to be there for her to run to when the world's gone crazy

When her thoughts and emotions are all out of tune

And she needs somewhere to find solace and shelter, love and comfort

In the arms of her big brother is where she wants to be but she knows it'll never be

Instead she's had friends adopt her as their kid sister

Offering to be her shelter when the world's gone mad

Promising to love and protect her as she goes through life

Shaking their heads in shame at the blood kin that has turned his back on her

Swearing they'll never leave her in the rain like he's done

And it's sad to say but she doesn't see her blood kin as brother anymore

She's accepted the handful of mixed guy friends as her blood  brothers

Accepted them as her shelter from the storms that life throws at her

She calls them brother with a smile and greets them with a hug

Wiping the memory of an ex blood kin completely from her memories

She has all the love she needs from her adopted brothers
