Mother Less Child
Miscarriage is one of the most difficult losses to talk about. How do we talk about losing someone no one has ever seen? Are we still moms if our children are gone before having come into the world? Should friends and family mention the baby and the loss?
I wrote this song after hearing a friend tell me about her miscarriage. Heartbroken after hearing her story, I sat at the piano and spontaneously wrote the song. It is my raw, authentic response to the devastating loss.
The theme for the song is a take on the Negro Spiritual, "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless CChild", which deals with the feelings of being lost in the world without a mother. My song deals with the flip side of that situation by addressing the question of what it feels like for a mother to be alone in the world without her child.
I'm intentionally releasing the song during Women's History Month in order to raise awareness of the grief so many women are experiencing.
