The Umbilical Bond

We both swimmed through her vein,
Mom was worried in vain.
Happy to be, Dad new,
Mom blushed and said I knew.

Womb is dark with no light,
Why Mom is eating light?
I wish she calls me “Hans”
Rocking with her warm hands.

Twiny baby plays here,
I said, Shoo! Mom will hear.
I fear, twin will not fit,
I will survive, being fit. 

Cord strangulated twin one,
I am the one who won.
How I wish twin could live,
Painful to see him leave!
