She reminds me of a dolphin,
Dipping her nose in the water and then her toes;
Dancing, twisting and vibrations of the waves,
jumping and circling from the bubbles beneath her.
She reminds me of my Godmother,
baking carrot cakes and homemade hot chocolate;
tending to her bonsai trees and pruning apricot branches,
fixing her apron with a particular knot.
She reminds me of sunshine,
brightening my day with her wisdom;
smile, and gentle reflection of life,
echoing the stories before her and after her.
She reminds me of my long-lost friend,
The one whom I use to write letters to and get lost in the details;
of what obscurities her brother might get up to,
like the tale of Benjamin Button.
She reminds of a familiar voice,
the one that we hear at school, then University and then in Stadiums;
She is omnipotent, larger than life,
yet transcient in her presence.
She recollects her time, like crystal gems,
Time that was bestowed to her, like fresly minted gold;
Rings of memories embbeded in her DNA,
sent to space, forever to be remembered.
She is universal,
A mother, a sister, a friend and trusted advisor;
She is my twin, my soul and guiding light,
Where would we be without her?
