To My Twin Who Never Lived


From the very beginning

The very first spark of life

You were there with me

Right there by my side


You're a part of my soul

Deeply ingrained in my heart

My other half of the whole

My perfect counterpart


I ask myself often

If God made the right call

Did He send the right baby to the coffin

Or was it even His choice at all


There's so much that you will never know

So many things you'll never see

Together, we didn't get to grow

You were taken before you made it to me


Sometimes I feel that you're there

Just watching over me

Floating around through the air

My sunshine when its not sunny


I miss you, unbearably so

It’s really odd to think

Each other we didn't really get to know

But you are my missing link


How do you miss someone so badly

Someone you've never met

How can you love someone so madly

Someone you never knew but will never forget


There's a hole somewhere deep inside

I know without a doubt it’s from losing you

You’re not where you should be, by my side

Without you, my heart has been replaced with scar tissue


I’m so sorry that you never got your chance

I’m living the life we should’ve shared

Perhaps we’ll meet again one day by happenstance

And you can see that for you, I truly cared


I’ll tell you all about the things you missed

And you can rest your head on my shoulder

Off to that beautiful, magical place we’ll drift

And together, we’ll never grow older

  • Comment from author about the poem: No amount of words will ever be able to describe the strange and hollow feeling of having a perfect counterpart but never having gotten to meet them.
