born in the epoch of spring
too soon did you learn of winter’s
bitter embrace, did you,
did you look down and see us weep?
sweetness unknown, swept away in darkest day
there now only lies a
what if? I laugh of the sibling animosity that
surely would have been, do you?
there is no pain, spring comes again
double trouble? perchance but
I smile, smile knowing I might see you again
do you look down, angel-winged and spot us looking back?
In loving memory of my twin brothers, Happy Birthday from your big sister.
