Li'l Sis

When I slept in the womb,
He slept in the tomb.
When I gave pain to
The one bearing me,
He too gave to her,
For bearing him in her heart.

"Once upon a time...", I started,
Waiting for a story.
"You had a brother...", my dad uttered.
"...whom you've never seen!"

"I've seen him!", I said...
"I know that tale of woe.
His face reflects in your eyes,
His smile glitters on your tears."

-Jo (Li'l Sis)
