Lullaby

Goodnight, my angel
Time to close your eyes
And save these questions for another day
I think I know what you've been asking me
I think you know what I've been trying to say
I promised I would never leave you
And you should always know
Wherever you may go
No matter where you are
I never will be far away

Goodnight, my angel
Now it's time to sleep
And still so many things I want to say
Remember all the songs you sang for me
When we went sailing on an emerald bay
And like a boat out on the ocean
I'm rocking you to sleep
The water's dark and deep
Inside this ancient heart
You'll always be a part of me

Goodnight, my angel
Now it's time to dream
And dream how wonderful your life will be
Someday your child may cry
And if you sing this lullabye
Then in your heart
There will always be a part of me

Someday we'll all be gone
But lullabyes go on and on...
They never die
That's how you
And I
Will be

May a lifetime of memories
wrap you in their comforting embrace.

A wise man told me recently to write my sorrows in the sand. They were some of the most comforting words I received at that time. So, I will pass them on to you. May they comfort you as they did me.
My thoughts are with you and your family.

Kind of like giving your cares to God.

The concept is not dissimilar - the idea is to let go of what you cannot change and trust that time (or a loving God - take your pick) will take up what you can't carry anymore.

Either way it's good advice, Sly :)

It would appear that Billy Joel posted that video (et al) on YouTube his ownself...

I finally read the link. That's nice. It reminds me of my Grandfather, who raised me. He was something. Thank you.
