The Twins Vickie and Maxie
Those final words
The wind was cold the skies so grey
In my heart I knew this was Mama's final day
"Vickie!" she called with her moments of last breath
"There is something I must tell it has much depth."
"Do you remember in the month of May?
"Many years ago at the river you did play?"
I listened to her soft words as she tried to carry on
But before she could say more she was gone!
"Mama please say more don't leave me in wonder
Feel my heart against my chest beating like thunder!"
Reading of the will
To you dearest Vickie I bequeath what is left, you are the only
I loved you so beyond compare
Find the small box I left in the attic for you
There you will find everything very true
Please forgive me for hiding all this from you
It was also hard for me I wish you knew
In it you will find all the photos I kept
I always looked at them when you slept
I know the tears will run down your face
Remember she is in a happier place
I open the box scared and forlorn
There were two curls maybe from the day I was born
Then came the picture of two little girls
With pigtails tied in tiny twirls
Was it a mirror reflection I saw?
A face same as mine she bore
I turned it around and written on the back
Vickie and Maxie at the river shack
My heart now pounding like a race to win
This I realised was my twin
My dearest Vickie sweet loving child,
For the short years of Maxie, in this box I filed
Know she was the younger and always by your side
You were both so young that summers' day
In the rivers water you jumped and did play
Some said these waters were haunted by night
Maybe it is true and they were right
The river took your sister twin and child of mine
Two days later we found her body on the banks of incline
Never thereafter did you mention her name
Inside we all knew there was too much pain
Looking into my Heart
Today I still look inside my heart
I always knew we are never very far apart
For we were identical twins, the same as came be
And when looking in the mirror it was Maxie I see
