For Our Sisters
For our sisters,
A dance of joy.
Sister, to have you is a blessing,
A gift of grace and love.
Your dignity is my shield,
Your compassion, my cloak,
Your wisdom, my guide,
Your laughter, my hope.
Your triumphs witness your endurance,
And your power.
You are my sister by birth,
My sister by choice,
My sister through heartache
And my sister through blessings.
G-d of sisterly devotion and warmth,
Bless our family with understanding
And our sisters with passion, prosperity and peace.
May their devotion inspire us to kindness and service.
Bless our days with moments together,
Celebrations of love and loss,
So that we may bring renewal and rejoicing into our lives
And into the world.
Blessed are You, G-d of sisters,
Who delights in sisterly love.
