Summary

This poem is about two-year-old twin toddlers that lost their parents during wartime in Iraq. Their parents were friends of mine. I was stationed at the same base in northern California. The grandparents (who were wonderful) adopted the twins. The twins were their whole life. While writing this poem I'm describing what the parents would say while looking down at the twins from heaven.

I want to see you grow
into a fine young man
I know you will; it’s in God’s written plan
Although you don’t see me
I think of you each day
I love you so much
in a very special way.

I miss not holding
your little hand
I miss seeing you play
in the warm summer sand
Although you don’t see me
I think of you each day
I love you so much
in a very special way.

You live with
loving grandparents
They will give you
all you need;
Love and care and
so much more
You are loved by so many
by all who adore.
