There you were, my celestial twin,
behold, a resplendent
so very much the same as I.
At first glance, a knowing smile,
Shared secrets without a word,
Private laughter understood.
universal trick, this meeting.
I've known you forever. Incarnate,
our birth, beyond the cosmic gate.
I followed you into this mortal life,
it may not have been my time,
when you left, I was right behind.
