There are many love songs that make me think of my husband, which, of course, is very fitting.He is, no doubt, the man I was supposed to marry and spend the rest of my life with, and although neither one of us is perfect, we are perfect for each other, and I love him so very, very much.
But there are other love songs, although written with romantic love in mind, that make me think of my other love….my daughter.And this time of year, along with hundreds of other times, I am reminded of just how great that love is.She is my hero.She fought so hard to come into this world and stay in it.Born at only 12 in. long, weighing 1 lb. 5 ½ oz., she is my miracle, my muse, my heart, the thing that made my life and this world finally make sense.And she is now 6 years old.She is blooming every day right in front of my eyes, and every time I think I can not possibly love her more, I am proved wrong.
What are you doing the rest of your life? North and south and east and west of your life? I have only one request of your life That you spend it all with me. All the seasons and the times of your days. All the nickels and the dimes of your days. Let the reasons and the rhymes of your days. All begin and end with me. I want to see your face, In every kind of light, In fields of gold and Forests of the night; And when you stand before The candles on a cake. Oh let me be the one to hear The silent wish you make. Those tomorrows waiting deep in your eyes In the world of love you keep in your eyes, I’ll awaken what’s asleep in your eyes, It may take a kiss or two.. And through all of my life.. Summer, winter, spring and fall of my life, All I ever will recall of my life Is all of my life with you.
