How a song can mean so much more to you over time…

This morning, we had VH1 on. A loves to dance and so, while we are getting ready for work, we put on a music channel and he makes us laugh and dances around so sweetly.

This morning, they had Poison by Alice Cooper on and, as I am a rock chick, I turned it up and danced around with A. Then, the next song was Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton. I love that song and I have always known that it was written for his son who had died. However, the words had never meant as much to me as they did this morning and, before the song was even 30 seconds in, I was crying.

What a beautiful song, what beautiful lyrics and, for the first time, I really got what he was talking about.

Losing a child is the worst thing you can ever go through, no matter when they die. After all, “There is no foot too small, that it cannot leave an imprint on this world”.
