Together We Stand
Together we fight- together we stand
As sisters we share more than most would think
Joined by a common bond.
Sisters of blood and of disease
So different in every other way
The rose and the thorn
Together we stand.
We are forever bound together
Bound forever-nothing can ever break us free
Our grasp is stronger than any force inside
Two separate lives to lead and
Two different personalities but
Cystic Fibrosis will never win
Together we fight
I am the rose and she is the thorn
I am the flower, gentler than the thorn
But never weaker
She is the bold one, always trying to protect the flower
She always knows what to do when things go wrong
She is my sister- no one can ever compare
At times we clash but
Together we stand
With the help of the thorn, the rose can survive
Together we strive to beat the impossible.
We are bound and wrapped by the tubing
Fighting against all odds
A power that works better in pairs
Together we fight-together we stand.
Against the dying, against the sickness
