This is the story of NAME, NAME and NAME who grew side by side and chin to chin.

NAME jiggled and wriggled inside mom’s tum,

NAME and NAME were peaceful, the quieter ones.

NAME couldn’t wait to be set free,

but NAME and NAME had other plans, you see...

NAME and NAME were angels, not meant for earth, but sent to keep NAME safe till birth.

And when NAME had grown big and strong, it was time for NAME and NAME to move along.

NAME and NAME whispered gently: It’s OK to cry, Even though we cannot stay, We’ll still be with you every day.

The time has come for us to go, but we love you more than you’ll ever know.

We are the brightest stars in the night sky,

butterflies flapping way up high.

We are the dancing summer breeze,

and the golden autumn leaves.

We are the sand that tickles your toes,

and the sun that kisses your nose.

We are the sparkle in your eye,

and the salty tears you cry.

We are the dimples in your cheek,

and your grubby little feet.

We are the soft curl of your hair,

and the depth of your twinkly eyed stare.

We are the gurgle in your laughter,

We are... your forever after.

Your brothers we will always be, For we are you and you are we. So when you feel sad or just a bit blue, Look in the mirror and right on cue, We’ll be smiling back at you.
