Day 385: letter challenge day4 (sibling)

have you ever felt the texture of your bellybutton wondering to whom you were once tied
wondered whether or not it hurt when you were finally umbilical free
do you remember when i would clean that crevice for you
i wanted you to be the prettiest baby in town
so i would wipe your lips clean after meals
i paid attention to the smallest details
hoping that someday you would too
only to find your own perfection
remember sister
before this world even began we were connected
