My darling twin

My Darling Twin

In our one womb we began
And we took our first breath on this land
Me so quite and you so loud
And we made our nanna very proud 

I remember her telling me quite a lot 
How poppy slapped you in your cot
You cried all the time when we came home
But after that you didn’t groan or moan

Then at five we went to school 
You were great and headed straight for the hall
But me I cried and run to mum
Don’t leave me here I’m to young

You so bright and me not quite
You helped me when I couldn’t get things right 
You helped me when I couldn’t spell cub
 From that day on you had my love 
Then we married and our children we had 
Me a girl and you a lad
What joy it was to be together 
But a storm was brewing we had to weather

Our two children that we loved
That god gave us from above
Didn’t have long on this earthly plain
But we will see them once again

We have shared love and pain
WE have shared loss and gain 
WE have shared our birthdays for 56 years
We will share them for many more white hairs
I love you my darling twin 
Over the oceans I would swim 
To be with you in our final days 
Which isn’t until 100 scorn and 11 days?
