Whenever someone meets me 
This happens without fail
They ask me how life is like with a twin.
I always laugh and answer 
The question takes me back
To the moment I've shared with my best friend.

Being a twin, I always say
Is like living with your best friend
Sure, you have fights, a scuffle here or there,
but your relationship remains unblemished 
and you know he'll have your back

It's like having a towboat, always pushing you, helping you, guiding you.
It's like having your own personal psychiatrist-in-residence, for all your crushing emotional needs
It's like having a comedian live right next door, always ready with some killer material

But above all, it's like having a window to yourself, your hearts, minds, hopes, dreams, loves, losses, everything, 
Is one.
And the same.

A twin is a blessing, and I'll do well not to forget that.
