When it is time to let go of your womb twin

Letting go. Its hard, but it helps.

One womb twin survivor write to me in 2003, when the project was in its infancy, and she told be about how she made a letting go ceremony.

This was the song she played at the time, and listened to many times thereafter.



Here it is for you, if you are planning a letting go ceremony or if you just want to remember.



Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again

Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this mem'ry bittersweet
Until we meet

Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget

Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light

Did you make a letting go ceremony? Do tell us about it here.

  1. I'm still new to all of this and working on getting my thoughts in order. But rather than let go, I've found comfort in knowing my womb twin is a part of me. Knowing that he's there has filled an empty space inside of me and makes me feel whole for the first time in my life. The song that I listen to over and over again and makes me think of my womb twin is Glenn Frey's Part of Me, Part of You:

    I felt it when the sun came up this morning
    I knew I could not wait another day
    Darling, there is something I must tell you
    A distant voice is calling me away

    Until we find a bridge across forever
    Until this grand illusion brings us home
    You and I will always be together
    From this day on you`ll never walk alone

    You`re a part of me, I`m a part of you
    Wherever we may travel
    Whatever we go through
    Whatever time may take away
    It cannot change the way we feel today
    So hold me close and say you feel it too
    You`re a part of me, and I`m a part of you

    I can hear it when I stand beside the river
    I can see it when I look up in the sky
    I can feel it when I hear that lonesome highway
    So many miles to go before I die

    We can never know about tomorrow
    Still we have to choose which way to go
    You and I are standing at the crossroads
    Darling, there is one thing you should know....

    You`re a part of me, I`m a part of you
    Wherever we may travel
    Whatever we go through
    Whatever time may take away
    It cannot change the way we feel today
    So hold me close and say you feel it too
    You`re part of me, and I`m a part of you

    I look at you your whole life stands before you
    I look at me and I`m running out of time
    Time has brought us here to share these moments
    To look for something we may never find
    Until we find a bridge across forever
    Until this grand illusion brings us home
    You and I will always be together
    From this day on you`ll never walk alone

    You`re a part of me, I`m a part of you
    Wherever we may travel
    Whatever we go through
    Whatever time may take away
    It cannot change the way we feel today
    So hold me close and say you feel it too
    You`re a part of me, and I`m a part of you
