Twins Forever~Written by Autumn Sunshine


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a twin, and identical twin?

I am a twin, my twin is named Gabrielle (like the angel) and my name is Autumn. Gabs is one minute older than me. I know one whole minute, we were delivered by Caesarean section, so to the doctor that minute was important. To all of us even our Mom we had a rough time of it. We all made it safely.

We have a lot of similarities as well as differences. It’s just how it is with twins, like with any sibiling, we are very close but we are not the same person.

We attended school in the small town we grew up in, having loads of fun switching places. One time stands out in my mind. I had mono., “the kissing disease” , and had been out of school, Gabs did not get mono. the boy she was kissing was safe  I was just supposed to be there getting some things from our English teacher. Well, firstly, I was not contagious, so I didn’t infest our class with germs. Though there were a couple I should have on! So we switched places, the teacher did not notice but classmates did and told. It still was funny.

Gabby has always felt actual physical pains, in times when I have been in severe pain. I don’t experience that sort of thing, does that make me less nice? No, it makes me less “sensitive” to “vibes” that she feels. She is just way more tuned in to things than I am

Having a twin is so awesome, it’s like always having your best friend to share things with; we have done this always.

We never swapped boyfriends and tried to fool them, they would have noticed for one thing; for another, we had totally different types of guys we liked. Hers had never been in “juvie” hall before  . I am not trying to make myself sound like “trouble”, but I am the twin with three holes in each ear, and 3 tattoos. Gabs had more sense she has one hole in each ear and as our Dad used to joke I already had enough holes in head. She also has no tattoos, I don’t regret mine, she just doesn’t want anything that “permanent” which again is sometimes looking at it from a sensible angle. She is just now way more level headed. She has gotten “grounded” me more than a few times from one thing or another.

She is not an angel, or is she??   Her late husband called her his Angel. She is and she was and will always be Dave’s angel. He passed away from cancer eight years ago this month. She helped him live longer with her love, I truly believe that. They had true love…

I love you, Gabs, you have been a rocking sister always and I love you so much! We have had a few funky road trips without and with a GPS  don’t want to “tell” on us, but we have gotten lost either way. We are directionally challenged. Yikes for real! We still fondly make our “Thelma and Louise” jokes  The ultimate road trip.

I have been blessed, and I am the twin writing this so I will say my sister is “perfect” or close to it. She just keeps giving and has the angel name, she deserves it!!

She is my twin. We were born twins. We will be Twins forever!

Sister


Pass the time with you in mind
It’s a rather quiet night
Feel the ground against my back
Counting stars against the black
Thinking bout another day
Wishing I was far away
Whether they were dreams or worries
You were there with me

Sister, I hear you laugh
My heart fills full up
Keep me please
Sister, when you cry
I feel your tears running down my face
Sister, Sister keep me

I hope you always know its true
I would never make it through
We could make the sun go down
Just by walking away
Playing like we used to play
Our kingdom will never go away
Feel you beating in my chest
I’ll be dead without

Sister, I hear you laugh
My heart fills full up
Keep me please
Sister, when you cry
I feel your tears running down my face
Sister, Sister will you keep me?

I would never make it through
Hope you always know its true
You could make the heaven’s fall
Just by walking away

Sister, I hear you laugh
My heart fills full up
Keep me please
Sister, when you cry
I feel your tears running down my face
Sister, Sister keep me
