My mother held me and sang this to me when I was little, and I felt close to her then. Now, as an adult, I know it is a sad song, and my mama was sad when she sang it because my daddy had gone. Still, it is a memory of closeness, and I cherish it and honor her emotion behind it.
When my little baby went back to the hospital the day after he first came home, this is the song I cried in the shower. I will never forget it. It was only jaundice but my heart was broken.
for Zoey, her daddy and I have always sang this to her :) we actually didnt know we were both singing her the same song as "our song" with her :) just recently found out a week or so ago- and shes almost 2! lol
