Haunted is a parent’s prayer for their children separated from them at our borders. I thought of my own daughters when they were young children and fell apart at the notion of being separated from them in such an inhumane way. I cried multiple times while we recorded it and for days after and even now as I tell you about it. I continue to pray for those families.

Lyrics

Haunted
© Beth Schafer, 2018

I’m haunted by your cries my child
I hear them in my heart
I hope you know that I am with you
Although we are apart

I’m haunted by your eyes my child
Their fear and their despair
Just know that I’m searching for you
And soon I will be there

And I pray that you’re strong
And I pray that you’re brave
And I pray you hang on through the night
There is light at the dawn of each day

I’m haunted by the world my child
A world that’s cruel and cold
A world not haunted by your crying
Doesn’t care if you grow old

So I pray that you’re strong
And I pray that you’re brave
And I pray you hang on through the night
There is light at the dawn of each day

And I pray that we’re strong
And I pray that we’re brave
And I pray we hang on every night
We will fight to bring a new day

I’m haunted, I’m haunted
