To my sister

"We slept in the same bed.
There was never a right time to say it.

It was always unnecessary.
The books in my father's shed were sighing.
The sheets were rising and falling around me with Anna's breathing.
I thought about waking her.

but it was unnecessary.
There would be other nights.

And how can you say I love you to someone you love?
I rolled onto my side and fell asleep next to her.

Here is the point of everything I have been trying to tell you...
It's always necessary.

I love you..."
