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?

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!
