This is a beautiful song with a heartbreaking story behind it. The song was written and performed by Jim Beaver, and here’s what he has to say about it:
I wrote this tune several years ago as a response to a tragedy. Someone near and dear to my heart experienced someone no one should ever have to: the passing of a child. While I knew there was nothing I could ever say or do to make it easier or better, I set out to write this song. My hope is that is can ease the pain of others past, present, and future. Much Love.
Thanks, Jim, for sharing this original song with us and for bringing hope to those who have been through something so devastating.
Jim is a wonderful person who also happens to run a music school in North Carolina.
