Katia Khanlian: To My Clueless Sister

Katia Khanlian, a student at the A&M Hovsepian School in Pasadena, CA is 2014 "ARTHUR HALVAJIAN MEMORIAL" ARMENIAN POETRY COMPETITION WINNER for the 12-17 age group. Congratulations, Katia!

I remember the memories we’ve made as children.
All the laughs we’ve had and all the foolish nonsense.
I remember every second of every one,
Grace, my goofy other half.

As if you’ve passed thirty,
You have your own place, car and money.
I count down the days until your arrival.
Now, I’m an only child because you’ve left me.

You’ve been placed in the real world now,
New faces, new challenges to overcome.
You say you’ve missed me, have you?
But I do wish you nothing but the best.
