Dinner with a Friend's Sister

Dinner was surreal
So easily given
Friendship from the young ones
Admiration, respect
Where nothing has been earned
Can I really take this
From one so far above
Gentle, kind, and real
Superego wars with ego
Hidden secrets
Does she know that others know
That older brothers tell
Of pain within the family
Deeper, darker wells
And yet she gives so freely
Compassion, gentle care
From the darkness in her life
She has a lightness there
