Shilo - the imaginary friend that a womb twin survivor creates to replace the missing twin. These lyrics describe the feelings so very well....

Young child with dreams
Dream, ev'ry dream on your own
When children play
Seems like you end up alone

Papa says he'd love to be with you
If he had the time
So you turn to the only friend you can find
There in your mind



Shilo, when I was young
I used to call your name
When no one else would come
Shilo, you always came
And we'd play

Counting the years
keeping my dreams to myself
´til the young girl with fire
made me trust somebody else

Held my hand out, I let her take me
Blind as a child
All I saw was the way that she made me smile
She made me smile

Shilo, when I was young
I used to call your name
When no one else would come
Shilo, you always came
But you'd stay

Had a dream, and it filled me with wonder
She had other plans
"Got to go," says, "she knows that I understand"
I understand

Shilo, when I was young
I used to call your name
When no one else would come
Shilo, you always came
Come today


Did you have an imaginary friend as a child, and are they still with you now you are an adult?

  1. Yes, I had an imaginary friend when I was younger, and until a few years ago (when I found this blog), I thought I was crazy thinking I still had her with me. Now of course I know the imaginary friend was always my twin, and that instead of a special playmate, she's my guardian angel.

    1. My twin was always with me, too, and as a small child, people thought she was my imaginary friend, but she was absolutely real, even if she only appeared to me. In later years, she would be my constant companion, best friend, and my guardian angel. I love her with all my heart and I'm never alone because of her!! By the way, I LOVED that Shilo song, when I was 15 it was a number-one hit, and now I know why it was so near and dear to me...subconsciously it spoke of the relationship I have with my precious twin.
