The one who came fourth and definitely last
The one born in the season of death
She who was adored by siblings
New one with all old things to wear
The perfect end, the final chapter
She who says “No” and nothing else
Mother’s clone
Princess of a hundred teddy bears
Left behind with Grandma
Learns to play by herself
She who longs to belong
Daughter dark and smirking
Daughter thunderstorm warning
Daughter valedictorian
She who writes about suicide
She who laughs when all else fails
One who finally feels at home, and now has to leave
She who must decide things she can’t
She who is still standing
Julie (meaning youthful)
Annemarie (a compromise
to keep the tradition alive)
Warders (for the father
she’ll never be as good as)
Baby who gets what she wants
Daughter good and kind
Daughter mature, Daughter strong
Daughter bird learning to fly
Daughter who leaves
and makes an empty nest.
