One Day a Year

Today is my birthday

and it is so nice to be recognized,

the very special day that comes once ayear

that everyone who cares about you

sends cards

gives gifts

spends quality time with you

calls and texts to say ‘Happy Birthday’

does creative special projects

It is so wonderful to be reminded that people care about you!

But the best thing about today

is that I get to share the day with my lovely twin sister.

Today is the one day a year that everyone recognizes me,

but everyday I feel so special to have a sister like her!

So today is not only my birthday,

but our birthday

And that

is what makes it even all the more special.

Perfectly Alone With You

Love

it is so overused

But I can’t seem to find another perfect word

that people might understand

it’s true depth of it’s meaning.

You are just always there

but when you are gone

part of me is gone with you.

. . . I don’t feel complete

I can be perfectly alone with you.

I can laugh about nothing

but we both know it’s something.

You know what I’m going to say

before I say and you already have a quippy comeback

I love all your corners

and miss them when they do not hold me.

Words do not convey what emotions can

and even them my heart can’t hold

all the strawberry jelly

(Inside Joke)

You and I have lived so much of the same life

and I can’t wait for more to experience with you.

I try not to look into the distance

because once upon a future

I’m not going to be able to share

every

single

second

with you.

Yes, I do not now.

But I know where you are

and what you are doing

and even that hurts not being with you.

I want your corners to hold me

and never let go.
