Double helix

guanine

Genetic code
your gift to me
arranged by spindles
woven to a whole

GTCACTGATAGC

thymine

Though genes alone
are never enough
to explain what defines me
indelibly your daughter

GTCACTGATAGC

cytosine

Created from you
though my eyes be green
yours deepest brown
can a smile be found in our DNA?

GTCACTGATAGC

adenine

Absent now
your double helix
dances still
your gift to me
