Parting ways (a poem for my twin sister)

Location

Looking at you is like looking in a mirror

same face, same features

growing up with you has been a joy

but now we are both seniors

about to part our ways

and I dread this day

for I ask myself everyday

what am I supposed to do without you,

you ARE my other half

the piece of me I must NOT leave

so I dread the day we part our ways

but know

you WILL always be that other me.
