I may be a twin but I'm one of a kind. ~ Author Unknown




Sometimes...at the strangest moments...I miss my twin. We shared our mother's womb for half a breath...a blink of an eye...a skip of a heartbeat. But there were two of us. I know. I feel it. And even tho only I was present on our birth day, only I saw the light at the end of the tunnel, you'd started the journey with me.


Where are you, my cosmic twin? Is there a special place in heaven for unborn babies? Those who have such a short beginning and for whatever reasons are ended before they're finished? Will you be there to welcome me someday? Will I know you when I see you?


My song is a lonely one. And, at moments like this, I cry for you.

So poignant, Kris. A beautiful lament for someone you sensed, but never really got to know.

Condolences. And courage, offered.

You had a twin? I didn´t know that. I feel the same way when I think of the baby I miscarried. Sometimes I wonder, will we see each other in heaven?

Visiting from Never Growing Old; this was very touching - short, sweet and to the point. I know your twin is awaiting you in heaven!

Perhaps instead of waiting for the unknown for the glimpse of that being, you could see that life form in a flower, a bird, a tree, the foam on an ocean wave, the truest vision of love.....

I have been away from Reader and my blogs for a month or more. This post was the first I happened on while trying to catch up. So lovely. You must occasionally have 'what ifs' about who she might have been. Thanks for sharing such personal feelings.

Oh.... this is so sad.... i cannot even imagine how things would have been for you and your family back then... but i think there will be a special place for them....

Pam said...

I can only imagine all the "what ifs". I lost a baby at birth and I often wonder what might have been and if I'll ever have a chance to know her. I imagine those feelings would be intensified when thinking about a twin.

I lost my twin at birth too. She died 3 hours after the birth. Today i'm 20 years old and often thinks of how she would look like, or what it would be to grow up togehter.

I don't know if you'll ever see this, Girl from Norway...but thank you for your comment. Being a "Lost Twin" is like looking in a mirror and seeing no reflection looking back at you. Thank you.
