Do you see that I am her? and that she is me?
For time does not work the way
that most people think.
Both girls are still me
as we share the same spirit.
For that is the way that both of us think
and believe it was always intended to be.
For the one who was once the smallest among us
still exists in my soul and is truly the same as
the girl whose name sounds kind of like trees.
I know you do think that this is all very sweet,
but which name should you use, to call me with ease?
Whichever you like best is what I would suggest,
but it is OK . . . if you just want to call me . . . Therese.
