The bond between Twin Daughters and Parents
When my Twins were Born
When my twins were born it was such a miracle
I had just come home from the Doctor Office and I started bleeding
So, I called the doctor and he said to go to the hospital
I did just that and all I was doing at the time was waiting.
Then my water actually broke and I went into labor but daddy
Was not there yet he was outside having a cigarette
While I delivered the twins, they would cry after delivery
When I talked to the first one she quieted down to a silhouette.
When the second one came out daddy came wall sing
In and he started talking and the second Twin
Calmed her down and stopped she stopped crying
While her daddy was in there talking to the twin.
The twins came out in the correct order which was wonderful
The first Twin was named after a name that I liked
And it turned out that she looks just like me which is joyful
The second twin was named after a name that daddy liked
And it turned out that she looks more like her daddy after all.
There is the special bond that we made when the twins were in my tummy
That they recognized our voiced after delivery
That bond we had with our twins was so sweet and endearing
That it leaves us in a state of wondering.
