Doll for Sammi


I am a doll

one tool of


never moving

a muscle.

The little girl

tells a story

but I bring

it to life.


(doll front) My sister and I played with Barbies. They had their own house—2 floors and an attic. The boxes took up the entire living room. We played in the boxes until Dad finished putting the houses together. The Barbies also had a jeep, blue and pink, that we would roll around on the carpet. Together we led our designated Barbie through a story of family and true love. After a while we would fight and stop playing for hours. Then we would return to our story and find our happy ending. I don’t play with my Barbies anymore, though I do remember those days fondly.


(Doll back) Remember this doll? The nurse gave it to me when you went to the hospital to have your gall bladder removed. I kept the doll for 13 years before figuring out what to do with it. As you can see, I have made an art project with it and share my love and thanks with you. Thank you for being my sister. Thank you for playing duets on the piano and later on violin and viola. I love you. I don’t say it enough. So whenever you don’t feel loved, pull out this doll and remember that sisters are forever, no matter how far apart they are. Thanks for listening. Don’t forget to be AWESOME!
