I sing this song to my kids every night. I always have. When I was pregnant with Sarah Beth I'd sing it to her. When she was born and spent the next almost 3 months in the NICU I sang it every day (multiple times) as I visited her. When I got pregnant with Bryan Luke I sang it to him. As I held him for the last time after he was stillborn, I sang it to him. I now sing it to Lil Buddy and Sarah Beth every night before bed.
I think it's the most appropriate song for my circumstances. I guess I started singing it because it was a sweet song. Now I tear up each time I sing it. It's the whole second verse that gets me every time... "The other night dear, as I lay sleeping, I dreamt I held you in my arms. When I awoke, I was mistaken, please don't take my sunshine away." Sigh...
Just wondered if any of you had songs like this for your kids? Or perhaps ones you cannot wait to sing to your kids when you meet them?
That's the weirdest thing ever... because I was listening to that song on one of Ben's Disney CD's and thought of YOU!!
I have one I think of. Jesus Loves Me... one of the verses most people don't know... "Jesus take this heart of mine, make it pure and wholly Thine. Thou hast bled and died for me. I will henceforth life for Thee. Yes, Jesus loves me...." The "take this heart of mine" part is supposed to be about yourself, but now that I have kids and a non-Christian hubby, in my mind, I think about them when I sing it hoping that one day the kids will choose to follow Jesus, and that sooner than later, dh will too.
When I was pg, I used to read the book "I'll Love You Forever" to my belly---once DS was born, everytime I sang that song while reading, I'd cry. Now we both cry when we read/sing it-its really sweet I can't wait to do the same with the twins!
