LIKE TWO PEAS IN A POD



LIKE TWO PEAS IN A POD
BY JUDY HAUGHTON-JAMES


Like two peas in a pod we were,
Very few could tell the difference for sure.
Delighted in the fact that God made us alike,
Amazing were our similar likes and dislikes.


Blue, red, green and pink were our favourite colours,
Roses have always been our favourite flowers.
Hobbies were listening to music, watching television and reading,
With number one spot taken by pen-palling.


Treasured our bird figurine collection,
That grew into a wide selection.
They came from north, south, east and west,
Yet dogs were always our pets.


If I had a chance to live my life again,
I would fear to face twinless pain.
Cancer a disease so gruesome
Has ended our happy twosome.

This poem is one of the early poems that I wrote shortly after Janine's death.

Hi Judy, I didn't see the title of your blog, until I saw the two peas in a pod snippet. I'm so sorry you've lost your twin. I can't even imagine life without my twinny. I'm a new follower. Come by for a visit:

In French, we say "Comme deux gouttes d'eau" means "Like two water drops" I can't imagine the pain you can feel but I wish you to be strong. This poem is wonderful
