Miscarriage – Time to say goodbye

28 May 2006 – This is a day that changed us forever.

I wrote the song “Time to say goodbye” four years after my wife miscarried as a way of expressing my deep sadness and a letting go of the hopes and dreams we had of having children. It was to acknowledge the child that we will never hold in our arms, but who will also never know the troubles of this world.

It has taken me eight years to write this blog.

This is the first time I have shared this publicly.
