Look Alikes

The nose is all mine, 
But my eyes look just like my sister Jennifer's. 
When I'm missing her I stand at the mirror, 
blocking the bottom half of my face with my hand, 
And I am with her. 

There she is looking back at me, 
With our big brown eyes. 
To bring her to me when I need her most 
With just a wave of my hand. 

The curve of her eyebrows, 
Her freckles here and there, 
Even the laugh lines at the corners of our eyes.
She starts to cry;
I wipe her tears.
