Twin Poem

I wrote this poem to give voice to my twin grandsons regarding the competition for their parents attention. Each child is special and sometimes the one who disagrees is considered stubborn and "trying to be different." That's the whole point - they are different. My son and daughter-in-law are excellent parents and strive to provide a healthy and loving home life. The boys are awesome and I thank God everyday for blessing our family with twins!

Twin Brothers

Being a twin is not always easy
Why is everyone so blind?
I may look like my brother,
But I am one of a kind.

I want to be noticed
For the person that's me.
My brother is special too,
Why can't we both be?

We don't like the same things
We don't always agree
We are two individuals
Brother and Me.

We don't mean to be rivals
Just friends and brothers
Unique and separate spirits
Defending each other.

We share much in common
It's easy to see-
I am not my brother
And he is not me.

I lost my twin at 26. I'm 31 now. Every day gets harder. Every birthday is turmoil knowing another year without him. Every morning I'm wishing for only death. Each day is getting up going to work not feeling purpose. You just don't know what you have until it's gone. We were special, different, and unique. He was my best friend, and I miss him every day, and it will never ever go away.

I am so sorry, because I can relate to that. My sister and I are twins and are so close. I cannot imagine life without her. Don't wish for death. Live life to the fullest knowing as you do so you celebrate your twin's life. You are blessed to have known what it was to have a best friend till death. Only twins can relate to that.

Great poem. I can relate with this poem. Am a twin myself, so I know where you coming from.
