This is a lo that is about one of Owen's lullabies that I really love.
sometimes i still canít believe
how great it feels that youíre here with me
youíve changed my whole life
going to spend all my days and nights looking out for you
chorus- i will be the sun on your rainy days
iíll be there beside you when you cannot find your way
iíll be at reach when your world goes insane
baby, i will love you always
lifeís too short to waste on regrets,
so chase your dreams and donít forget
thereís nothing you can do to make me turn my back on you
i wonít let you down
i wonít pretend that i can keep you from getting hurt
and i canít make sure that you donít fail
but i can hold you up when your strength is gone
and help you make things right when they go wrong
These are the lyrics to a lullaby on Owen's 1st lullaby CD he got from Grandma his 1st Christmas. I've lost the case and the original CD has long since not worked, so I have no idea what it's called or who it's by. Luckily, soon before it died, I ripped it's songs to my computer, so I have it saved.
Anyway, this CD has been played for every sleep, day and night for about 3 years. The songs on this CD always soothed Owen and made him feel safe when he was alone in his room. This particular song is my personal favorite because of how profoundly touched I always feel from the words in this song.
I kind of think of this song as my own pledge to my children. I hope that they will always know how much they mean to me.
