Carried and Loved – Elizabeth Rauchenstein (original song inspired by miscarriage/pregnancy loss)


Hi, my name is Elizabeth, and I would like
to share an original song inspired by a really sad moment in our lives that we
had recently. I know I’m not alone when I talk about miscarriage – and there’s such
a grief and a loss that goes along with that experience. It’s really hard.
And every person’s journey is different. For me, songwriting has been a real source of healing. And so I’d like to share a song
that I wrote called ‘Carried and Loved.’ And this will help me remember our
little one that we lost, for many years to come. But I also hope it helps some people out there who have experienced miscarriage
and just are looking for a song that might speak to them. One o’clock on Sunday afternoon, waiting
by the phone for the news the nurse called to say your little life had just begun We danced around the kitchen laughing
through tears, hands to my belly, welcomed you here We couldn’t have known how soon you’d be gone This is for our son or our daughter, from your mother and father. You were carried and loved, carried and loved Too soon to let you go, too soon to give you a name or say goodbye, goodbye little one You were carried and loved I hold in my hands pictures of you Black and white images, my only proof that I was your home, when you were here Now I fold your baby things, pack away blankets Oh what could have been a future with you, and memories we’d share This is to our son or our daughter, from your mother and father. You were carried and loved, carried and loved Too soon to let you go, too soon to give you a name or say goodbye, goodbye little one You were carried and loved You were carried and loved, carried and loved Too soon to let you go, too soon to give you a name or say goodbye, goodbye little one You were carried and loved Carried and loved
