To Mother You

I honestly cannot imagine how I never heard this song.  It is the lullaby for the older adopted child.   Don't watch the video, but play the music (below) and read the lyrics.  


This is to mother you
To comfort you and get you through
Through when your nights are lonely
Through when your dreams are only blue
This is to mother you

This is to be with you
To hold you and to kiss you too
For when you need me I will do
What your own mother didn't do
Which is to mother you

All the pain that you have known
All the violence in your soul
All the 'wrong' things you have done
I will take from you when I come
All mistakes made in distress
All your unhappiness
I will take away with my kiss, yes
I will give you tenderness

For child I am so glad I've found you
Although my arms have always been around you
Sweet bird although you did not see me
I saw you

And I'm here to mother you
To comfort you and get you through
Through when your nights are lonely
Through when your dreams are only blue
This is to mother you

It's a beautiful song, and I can't believe I forgot about it! Thanks for reminding me of its existence.

Made me cry. Thanks for sharing that. It's been a rough couple of days here and sometimes I have to literally remind myself WHY I'm doing what I'm doing.

Hey, Lindsay, I was looking at your photos on FB - you created such a lovely holiday for your kids. We did NOTHING. I'm such a loser.
