...Lien, my best friend and I will for the rest of time be so close that nothing could get between us...

Not by blood are we related,

Though together we were consummated,

Separated were we by time & space,

The same face we both did not, as well, receive,

But from the day we were conceived,

We both did towards each other race…


We are, and forever will be, brothers,

Twins under the skin, born of different mothers,

Love shared between us; we travel through time thus,

We are for each other, blanketed covers,

Never to lose track or touch of the other…


Love I will have for you, my twin,

Forever and a day will my life’s breath be yours,

For time infinitum, your world and mine,

Are to be part & parcel of each other’s,

Not even can death separate our attached souls,

We are twins & in the same, ONE…

I'm with Jerry on this - true friends are like gold-dust. Lucky you to hold such a treasure.
Good to see you back, my friend.

1)So good to see you online, again, Ed. 2) Close friendship is such a treasure. 3) You've found and appreciate that, as fondly expressed in this 'charmer". All GREAT News :o)

Blessings and Love - Micke

Huge Hugs Ed, I was so concerned for you!

I am a spiritualist as all know, twins do not
have to be born of the same mother, there is
a connection everlasting and it is a wonderful
one... when twins re-unite they can never be
separated again.

Many blessings, love and light to you both!

Love and Light

Great to have you back, Ed. This is a fine tribute to a true friend and a gift well-shared through your verses. Love and peace to you,

My oldest friend and I call each other 'sisters of the heart'. We cannot even remember who said that first but it stuck. I truly get your meaning, and you expressed the deepest notes of this best friends' tribute right on key! Be well, Kathy
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 10/9/2012
I'm not sure of the exact connection between the two of you, but from what you are writing this seems to be quite profound.

I was so worried that we may have lost you here when you didn't write for so long. All I can say is, “Welcome Back,” and may our exchanges continue for a very long time.

Wonderful to see you again, Ed; welcome back! I just got out of the hospital myself (dehydration; five days). Take care of yourself!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :D

Welcome Back - Ye Ole Knasty Knave! But the mind boggles at the mere thought that you have a twin, and that there are two old Jersey Devils lurking about out there. I dare not tell dear old Ma.

We all have a twin somewhere i am told. My cousin said just last week that she saw me at Giant in the next town, i said I wasn't there, she said she surely did see my twin...I've been told in the past that someone saw a twin for me too. So it is true. Glad you are such good buddies. Matt.....I am your good friend too although we've never met though.
