Oh my
Beloved
Older sister-
Kagome
Is truly
A strange
Child-
Yet,
She
Eases
Inuyasha's
Heart-

Even after
Fifty years,
Oh my
Beloved
Older sister-
I still
Remember
How terrifying
He was
When first
He came
To us-

Wary,
Snarling,
Attacking
Needlessly
Without
Being
Attacked,
Oh my
Beloved
Older sister-
An animal
Abused-

But around
Kagome,
Oh my
Beloved
Older sister-
He drops
The mask-
Just a little-
Showing me
A once
Beloved son,
Cherished
By a mother-

Oh my
Beloved
Older sister-
She has
Given him
Permission
To laugh,
To love,
To live
Without shame.
Because,
Of this-

He's lost
Some
Of his anger
And mourns
For you,
Oh my
Beloved
Older sister-
As I have
These last
Lonely
Fifty years.
