A conversation like an echo;
I unintentionally repeated every word you said
As you spoke them over the phone to me.
Because you are the person who taught me
How to talk, taught me how to be.
I know your mannerisms and idiosyncrasies
Because I have grown to adopt them as my own.
Learned and repeated, passed through a generation
An immortal continuation of behaviour-
Because one day I too may have a daughter,
Just like you.
