My Beautiful Girls
by Delilah Coyne
Day and night, like two polar opposites.
The raven haired beauty with dark, deep eyes.
A tender young thing with bouncy curls and a cherub's cheeks.
So soft she is... to hold her in my arms is to know the softest softness.
Pale porcelain arms hug so sweetly, so lovingly.
Full of laughter and sparkle, she exudes life... life with spice.
She is my Snow White.
The golden haired princess with blue green eyes, amazing child.
With sweetness she tends to her sister, a beautiful spirit she possesses.
Honey wheat, waist long locks sway softly as she dances about the room, graceful and lithe.
Singing a song she makes up as she goes.
A creative soul, she paints and draws and dances and sings.
Tall and tan, slim and lovely.
She is my Malibu Barbie.
Their common trait, an unrivaled love for each other. Sisters, friends.
Author's Note: My girls really couldn't look any more different, but they are as close as can be.

My children are very different also- in every way imaginable, but they love each other dearly. I felt like I was reading about my girls. I loved the way you described them- Snow White and Malibu Barbie- and I thought the last line was the best!! Excellent job!
