a poem by Lee Emmett, Australia - poetry writer, author, poet

observe over time
how her approach
to her older brother
changes, for so
long he is her
main protector and
defender as she
moves from primary
to secondary school

later, as a young adult
she struggles to break
free, rejects his guidance
and care, andinsists on doing
everything her own way

while father ill, and
died, she grows even
closer to her brother
drawing on him for
support, and giving
it when he needs her
shoulder to cry, or
her ears to listen

nowadays, on verge of
marriage, ambiguity is
sometimes expressed, but
loving relationship endures
foundation's strong for life
