I have a music box my grandpa used to play for me when I was a kid. When I was pregnant with Chaunchai, I used to play it for him and he would kick and move. When the chaplain asked us if we wanted to play a song at his memorial service I knew right away we would play his song. After the service my dad told me he had listened to that song a hundred times, but he had never really heard it until that day. I leave the music box next to Chaunchai's urn and some days I wind it up and play it for him and just hang my head and cry.

You Are My Sunshine
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You'll never know, dear,
How much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away

The other nite, dear,
As I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms.
When I awoke, dear,
I was mistaken
And I hung my head and cried.

You are my sunshine,
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You'll never know, dear,
How much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.

There are other verses to the song also. We chose to play Elizabeth Mitchell's version.
