To my sisters

You are me;

I see me in your eyes

in the children we were

in the moments that are only ours

and that are more real

because you were there

with me.


It was always us;

I don’t remember me without you,

without feeling that I was never alone

because I had you

with me.


I am you;

in the ties that bind

the outlines of our DNA

in having a part of my soul in yours

woven into each other and locked away

because I have you

in me.


It will always be us

that much is true,

we will carry each other

in high tides

or if a storm breaks through:


because, today,

I am me because of you.
