SISTERS

Loss on the road to finding you, my companion.
Maureen seeing her new baby sister cried out "Bebe".
"Denise "she repeated after me but it sounded like NeNe.
Maureen became MoMo.
Well Nene and MoMo are grown now as sisters grow.
They grew like intertwined trees .
The girls are gone but, still sisters.
They are sisters as I once had a sister.
The princess Felicitaz grew up and died and I am alone.
