I wrote The Hidden Child for my student to use in a media arts project. I thought of this while in the hospital for surgery. I was thinking about each of my students and how unique each one was. This is a song about the individual voice that every child has and how important it is to take the time to listen. Sometimes it is not what we expect to hear but if we listen with an open mind we may be delightfully surprised.

Lyrics:
THE HIDDEN CHILD

The hidden child,
whose voice is shouting,
whose song is sung
in silence at dawn.
(chorus)
A whispered melody of a heart that is beating,
to a drumming song and a band on fire!
Those spoken words...
I tried to listen,
yet go unheard
since my ears were closed.
(chorus)
Now listen! Hush! A child is calling.
A story told in exaltation.
(chorus)
A spoken melody
of a heart that is unafraid,
sings a drumming song;
plays band on fire!
Now listen! Hush! A child is calling.
A hidden voice
that we need to hear.
