ALL PROCEEDS BEING DONATED TO TWINKLE STAR PROJECT.

In November 2016 my cousin Brooke's world turned upside down when the doctors told her, just a few weeks shy of her babies due date, that there was no heartbeat.

"No one got to know our baby, our Zoë; only I got to experience her entire life, every second of it until the last one.”

I wrote this song to honour and cherish little Zoë forever. Brooke said, “We don't have protocol for this type of death in our culture. Condolences can often be confusing and awkward, unintentionally leaving the bereaved family hurt and isolated. For instance when losing a parent, you hear things like ‘I'm sorry to hear of your moms passing, she was a great person. I remember this time when she <fill in the blank>', with miscarriage or stillbirth there are no <fill in the blanks> only 'what could have beens'.”

Brooke was compelled to help facilitate a similar experience that she had in the hospital for families who endure perinatal loss at any stage of pregnancy. "These are the very families that we are trying to console with Twinkle Star Project.”

I hope to have this video and song shine a light on Pregnancy Loss Awareness and help families heal knowing they have support from their communities. Brooke said it best in that we find a way to honour their child’s lives and continue to do so in the days, months and years to come.

All proceeds from the purchase of this song will be donated to Twinkle Star Project. You can also donate directly via their website which also has a resource page for those wanting more information on other Saskatchewan and Canadian organizations.

Track Name: Zoë (It Ripped Me Apart)
There was a time long ago
Thought that my life was alright
I moved along with the crowd
Nothing was quite out of sight

Then yesterday came along
Ripped me apart from the start
How can they come down for her
Now you just live in my heart

DON’T TELL ME
CAUSE I DON’T WANT TO KNOW, I WONDER
WILL YOU HOLD HER
FOR AS LONG AS YOU CAN

Not only one name but three
No time to grow on your own
This was the fourth of the year
The youngest one on the stone

A lot of miles you covered
And only eight months to date
But this time was different
You just couldn’t make it out alive this time

DON’T TELL ME
CAUSE I DON’T WANT TO KNOW, I WONDER
WILL YOU HOLD HER
FOR AS LONG AS YOU CAN

DON’T TELL ME
CAUSE I DON’T WANT TO KNOW, I WONDER
WILL YOU HOLD HER
FOR AS LONG AS YOU CAN

There was a time long ago
Thought that my life was alright
Then yesterday came along
