Watching Us Grow

by Emily Sievertsen
(Grand Rapids, MI)

I watch him grow
I watch him laugh
always wanted to have
everything he had

He was 5 and I was 3
thought I needed to be
all that he was

But now he's 15
and all grown up
plays basketball
and I gave up
on trying to be like him

Now I'm 13
almost full grown
I play hockey
and he gave up
on talking to me

I watch him play
I watch him sing
always thought he was
much better than me

Oh he was 5 and I was 3
thought I needed to be
all that he was

But now he's 25
and got a wife
a kid on the way
and we've grown too far apart

I'm 23 and still dating around
hoping Mr. Right will come to town
I would love my brother's help
but he's too busy to come to Canada

Oh he was 5 and I was 3
I know now that I will never be
all that he was

(big break)

I'll be 93
he'll be 95
I'll take one last look into his eyes
he'll take his last breath
as I start to cry

Soon it'll be my time
