I noticed their eyes first
Blue, startling sapphires
Twin images in all their faces.
They all looked the same
Their smiles, their dimpled cheeks
The love they seemed to spread.
I didn’t pay attention in the beginning.
I didn’t care about their eyes or their smiles.
I hated that I didn’t have them.
Until I noticed beyond them
Looking into the distance, in between the gaps they left
A girl with green eyes and a boy with a freckled nose.
