I’m changing it up a bit today. Here’s a song that makes me think of the fierce love between a parent and a hurt child. It’s called “Your Heart” by Anne Heaton. The slightly dark undertow makes me think of a traumatized child struggling to believe that there is someone who can handle him/her despite their history of abuse or neglect.
Check out these lyrics:
I raised my hands to the sky
Brought cool rain to your eyes
I made a big sound like thunder
But you didn’t move / And that’s when I knew
Your love was fearless and true
Or better yet, listen to the whole song.
