Older

One day:

I can't remember 

 

Three days:

My tears fell on your hand.

 

Two weeks:

In school, they stare.

 

Six weeks:

A lonely sister on Christmas.

 

Four months:

Transferred schools, better tools.

 

Seven months: 

Planned but failed

 

Nine months:

Lost and faking

 

Twelve months:

I can breathe again

 

Two Years:

I can see again

 

Four Years:

I am older than you, brother

 

More years:

I will grow for you
