A Life Of Perfection (REVISED)


A Life Of Perfection
Seeing my twin sis like this, happy, shining and smiling;
she ascribes it to the show she has seen but I know it is
her wonderful new relationship with an understanding
man who loves her the way we never could. So she tells
me gory details of things I never wanted to know; he’s

Unfazed, loving & caring for her and equally she cares
for him. I see my beloved with a fresh understanding,
enjoy my son, feel for my daughter coughing a month
now – and my translation colleague helping me solve
a riddle about an airport runway military zone

I am as privileged as my Sis; we captured our dreams,
have happiness today that beckoned when we were
small, forlorn, confused – our dreams ripening into
reality. Additionally I’ve found a teacher and friends
on the Internet all sharing my love of poetry

This is a life of perfection to me!
