Here are some poems I have collected from around the place. Hope there is something that may help
Twins are double trouble,
They cry, they smash, they tear.
They break and spill and bite and scratch
And pull each otherís hair.
They practice art upon the walls,
And yank electric plugs.
And biscuits, milk and something weird
Is ground into the rugs.
They drive their mother crazy
Their father is berserk,
Heís glad when Monday rolls around,
When he goes back to work.
The nappy bin is filled again,
The laundry tubís piled high.
The doctor bills and others too,
Are mounting to the sky.
So, if you have a single child
As placid as a dove.
Contain your envy, if you can
Cause we get double love!!!
The heavens were excited
The weather was just right
"Gather around" the wisest angel said,
"God's making twins tonight"
It's quite a marvelous process, as anybody knows...
Two seperate soul's beginning their lives, as God's love just overflows.
Perhaps he'll make them just alike, or as different as can be,
But that's the way He wants it, He's planned it that way you see,
He must find them a loving mum, a very special dad...
For twins take special parents, the best just must be had.
So your joy is mighty special, I'm sure you know that's true
God knew you'd be these parents, and so, he sent you two.
Four kicking feet, four tiny fists, two separate beating hearts
Kidneys, lungs and vertebrae each perfect little parts.
Measurements are taken, dates and times compared,
But I am busy watching you both moving gently there.
When my eyes first rested on each perfect little face
I felt a surge of love times two that nothing can erase.
Dreams were born inside me for the persons you'll become
Hopes for health and happiness and joyous days to come.
That moment now is captured here for all eternity
A photographic snapshot of that special memory.
A very first twin encounter, and my sheer delight,
Finding out for certain that I loved you at first sight!
The Twin Connection
When I gaze upon the lovely site,
of my twins arm in arm, asleep at nite.
My heart beats a special pace,
to see the innocent exp
ression on their face.
Peace, and love, and happiness.
A special bond I call twinness.
My two little angels, never apart.
A sweetness that comes from one beating heart.
Though someday, independant and grown
I have the joy of knowing they will never be alone.
Miracles happen, one happened to me,
when a blessing of one, became
the blessing of we.
A bond before birth, a bond beyond time,
two souls created in sharing, your story is mine.
When one of us leaves, two continue to be,
a mirror's relection -- you, me, and we.
Two faces to wash
And four dirty hands
Two insistent voices
Twice as much crying
when things go wrong
The four eyes closing
With slumber song
Twice as many garments
Blowing on the line
Two cherbus in the go cart
Soaking up sunshine
Work I do for twins
Naturally comes double
But four arms to hug me
Repay all my touble.
Twin brothers we've been right from the start,
we're always together, never apart.
Sometimes we fight, sometimes we play,
but we always kiss goodnight at the end of each day.
We're always so busy wherever we go,
so much to see we can never go slow.
People always ask Mommy "Are they twins?"
"Boy, can't they tell?" we think with matching grins.
Some people have trouble telling who's who,
but I know I am me and you are you.
Mommy and Daddy can always tell us apart,
cause they don't look with their eyes, but with their heart.
It's not always easy being twin brothers,
but we know that brothers are forever there for eachother.
Double Dose of Love
To my sweet little Angels,
my Double Dose of Love.
Sent to us from Heaven,
Miracles from above.
Two separate heartbeats,
you shared for quit sometime,
beating all so beautifully,
keeping pace with mine.
But yet, so different as can be
each in your special ways,
I am so thankful everynight
for You as I Pray.
One with hair of golden curls
and eyes of the clear blue sky.
The other with long, straight hair,
going on for miles.
And eyes that are of the darkest blue,
cause the fondest heart to sigh.
Although your voices somewhat trick me,
I can always tell by your touch,
just who gives me great big hugs,
and who I Love so much.
I sit amazed, as I watch you play
for hours in the day,
And how that bond that you both share
will never fade away.
I watch you grow and day by day,
I wonder where you went,
My sweet little Angels from Above,
which You were Heaven sent.
So to my darlings, Summer and Autumn
I write this just for You,
My Little Double Dose of Love,
I say that I Love You.
Double joy, double fun,
double bottles, double sun.
Double kisses, double hugs,
double diapers, double tugs.
Double bottles, double wishes,
double laundry, double dishes.
Double troubles, double dressings,
Double bubbles, double blessings.

Welcome to the world of being a mother to twins,
A world full of chaos, a world full of grins.
Since the day that these beautiful babies arrived,
Life has been hectic but overflowing with pride.
You have two sets of whimpers, two meals to fix,
Two diapers to change, two bottles to mix.
Twins bring double laughter, but double tears too,
You're always quite daunted there's so much to do.
But raising two kids is no more demanding,
You'll use all your patience and more understanding.
Two kids in a set are never too much,
You simply respond with a mom's loving touch.
