DOPPELGANGER

It is said we all have a twin out there.
Same face, maybe same hair,
if I saw mine I’d stop and stare
wondering where’ I’ve seen
that face before. It is for sure
others may recognize
what my bathroom mirror disguises.
My eyes may be fooling me.
I wonder if they wonder too,
seeing me the way I do.

I found a photo of a group of girls and one of the three is the spitting image of my daughter. Well actually, of both of my daughters. The right side of her face is an identical representation of my youngest, Andrea and the left side is exactly my oldest, Melissa. They’ve both got a double out there. Strangely, it’s in the same person! Oddly strange.
