this is just a poem i wrote when i get a little sad because i didn't get to have a childhood with my sister Rosa (Rosie) and my brothers who were twins, Raphael and Aramaeus. None of them suvived to full term, sometimes i seem to miss Rosie lots more because i didn't get to know her, she was in and out of my life very quickly...and even though this was over 9 years ago, i still wish i wasn't an only child...

anyway:

Candy coloured toys
With cupcakes and butterflies
Lilting lullabies on a soft summer breeze
The flowers all smile as you dance
The red glints appear in your hair
As you twirl in the sunlight
Just like me
In a beautiful garden,
Always filled with happiness
Nine years my junior,
I could have taught you all my games
Dressed up as fairies for Beltane
Read books of fantasy, imagination and joy
In the sunlight, or under your tree

But instead your tree is planted in our scared place
Along with the trees of our brothers
Who, like you found a better place
And instead, left me to grow up alone
With no one to teach the games and old ways
No one to dry tears and console your worries
No one to make me happy with child-like remedies,
When my entire world feels lost

I know never met you,
But I know so well,
Because we are not just flesh and blood
We are soul brothers and sisters
Even though I know that you watch me day and night
Enter my dreams and fill my soul with such joy
I miss you profoundly
And have wished so many times that we could have shared a childhood
Things would have been very different for all…
And maybe one day
You’ll come back to me in the flesh
And we will get to dance once again…

    That's really good twisted_trinity but also really sad. I don't know what else to say but it is a very nice poem, it really speaks volumes when it comes to showing how you feel.

    its difficult to talk about it to people, because a lot of people don't understand how overjoyed you become when you hear you going to have a brother or a sister, and then they never arrive...

    seems easier to write than to speak sometimes...
