Can you imagine
For one moment
You are 43
Years old

Your children:
R age 17
J age 15
C age 13
Z age 11

A social worker,
A therapist,
And a mother
Of three
And one

Three boys
One girl

J and R
Were drinking
C was flunking school
Z was doing fine, he always was

You are never enough
Never enough for your husband
Or your children

Doug, is a good man,
But his temper gets the best of him
So ignore the holes
In the wall and

You wouldn't leave though
He doesn't hit us
Or the kids
Except that

But that was a strange
Situation sorry

You are 43 year old woman
Four teenagers
A therapist

Your having twins!!

Twins lost several years ago
still on my mind
my nightmares remind me
there's no solace to find

To never hear those giggles
To never hear one cry
I must've asked a thousand times
"God, why'd you take them, why?"

They were only in my womb a while
But I think about them still
I have to believe there's an afterlife
Because I will hold them. I will!

Some people say "It was for the best!"
I would like to know how they know
because to me that comment
hits lower than the low

I know my angel babies
have wiped the tears where I lay
And they are playing with the Almighty
In the Awesome Kingdom where they stay
Lost twins in utero several years ago but never forget

There as never been a single moment day or night I don't think of her I'm truely blessed to feel still so attached to
just as In life like siamese twin joined together In an unbreakable bond life or death we remain
So much so I require nothing else from life but to continue my poetry of her and to continue to live on with
Through fond memory has given me an a strength, that at one time was unknown to me
But a strength that carries me through
The bond of love that can never be broken an undying love for each other I live life for the two of us now untill we meet
I will love life for the two of us untill the day comes we meet again

I remember you laying In my
arm's and so much I feel her
still,and  the fragrance of her
perfume  Youth Dew drifting
gently through the
The warms and softness of
her body the contrast of rough
against the smoothness of
Helen body against mine to kiss
the sweetness of her
We'd cling to each others bodies
never wanting to ever let go for
the love we had for each and
although my darling gone our
love will never ever
And just like Siamese twin that
were ever separated by operation
for that would surely caused our
premature death for we couldn't
live apart
always and forever, for that's how
we were meant to be, for true love
surely that's what Helen and I truly
had a love that even In death will
never die
Like Siamese twin that just couldn't
live apart, and after Helen past away
the only way I could survive was to
write poetry of her I dedicate all my
time to writing of
Just like Siamese that were never
ever separated joined together
thought our life together for to part
us would have killed us both as It
nearly did to
But I survived through keeping
Helen's memory alive totally
dedication to her to write about
our life together and to make mark
In life for her, and I know I can't
ever let her go for I truly love
Helen and I were like Siamese twins joined together for life, for to have tried to separate
us would have truly killed us bot
mechanical wonders are they!
the greatness of ever-changing plains
withered weathering willows which wallow in the wake of winds,
shriveling, sniffling, cynical twins.

solaris, the fantastical bringer of light!
oh how we lift our faces in your fruit-bearing gaze.
our thanks for extinguishing the inky blight, you have given us sight.
we miserable, entangled creatures in locks and chains,
at the mercy of the return of your fiery blaze.
we rely on Pandora’s final curiosity
and during times of ultimate crisis, we wish for you
and pray for catharsis.

but your sister…

luna, you wretched being, wrecker of sanity!
oh how you unravel the psyche, fibrous ends,
intertwining tapestries meticulously woven yet disassembled so quickly.
we are aghast at the horrors with which you plague us.
each stare through the mirror, reversed pools of vanity
freckles of light fall from their places
on weary onlookers’ shadowy faces
as they melt in the hysterics of your obscure domain.

finally a farewell, an intonation of speech:
discombobulated words, addressed to each;
for one sister revitalizes that which the other hath slain.

Always to together for forever we'll be just as
In life as death so we
For I know my darling
somewhere out you waiting for me
One day I'll be joining you
where together we'll be just as In life forever was meant to
So much In love for true romance, we truly did have
like Siamese twins never apart just In life so shall be In
Together as In life as In death
forever we'll be
Everybody loves the twins, you will too.
Everybody loves the things they’ll say and do;
Their eyes smile when they see you coming,
You smile back because they’re so loving.
Everybody loves the twins, you will too,
The girls surely love you two.

Brigid likes to crawl along the wall now that she can stand,
Ophelia does the same but the girls have to use their hands;
It won’t be long now until they’re walking,
Wait another month and they won’t stop talking.
Everybody loves the twins, you will too
The girls surely love you two.

They don’t know how to say they're in love with you,
But that's okay you can see that its plainly true;
They light up when they see you coming,
The arms start flailing and their legs start pumping.
Everybody loves the twins, you will too,
The girls surely love you two.

Dreaming of your loves in the comfort they’re in love with you,
Dreaming of your loves in the comfort that you love them too.
Dreaming of my loves in the comfort I'm in love with you.

Helen and I were like Siamese twin 24/7 we
were together
did we ever want to
be apart neither of us
could ever visualise
That's the way we
stayed for the twenty
years together
whatever we did
wherever we went
but now there's always that empty space a
space that will never be
We were like Siamese twins never apart It made It so much  harder when Helen passed away
