For Betty

They say two halves make a whole,

And how true that can be.

Some things that come together,

Are just better to see.

It happens with people,

As well, can't you see?

With twins in the family,

It's a blessing to me.

There were two such as this,

Two so sweet and with such grace.

The Angels came to take Betty,

Now no one can take her place.

The loss is so tragic,

Especially to her twin.

As if her own heart stopped,

With a hole left within.

The family left without her,

Felt the loss so great.

Asking in hushed voices,

"Has there been a mistake?"

No mistake has been made,

But by special request,

God needed an Angel,

As you remember: "He only takes the best."
