The emptiness in my soul - father

the emptiness in my soul - father"The emptiness in my soul" tells the story of the sadness a father feels over the loss of his child.
The music and text, written by Patrick Schouten, portrays the powerlessness, sadness and disbelief that a father can feel when faced with this most personal of crises.
We hope to offer all fathers who face a similar loss the comfort, recognition and remembrance that can eventually lead to discussion and closure.
