YOU WHO DIED FOR ME

We were linked to each other for nine month's feat With a wiry nerve in womb of our struggling mother. We shared each breath together and each heartbeat. You cared for me more than just an earthly brother. You let me take all nourishments, denying yourself And your such kindness made you so weak, weak. Perceiving my existence you offered me your help. The existence that strived hard being deathly sick. Brother! We were born together in this misty earth But you were too,too weak to adapt and to survive. Weakening yourself, you made me strong by birth. Dying, you left this earthly pyre in day number Five. But you have not died my martyr brother, my twin For every atom in my blood, breath resembles you. Once I lived with you, for you and now you live in My whole being and my dual existence ever-new. (In memory of my twin brother who died on his infancy of 5th day)
