Forever Siblings
By Nancy Watts

Memories fade in and out
Connecting in the distance
An umbilical tugging
Toward a happier place

Children of the same
Fluid motion in time
Sharing the bonds of youth

And the Pinocchio arms
Of recent years that would
Greet at the door

Will once again be flesh
While I say goodbye
