Some Kind of Record

How many posts can a girl write in one day?

I just wanted to share this song I heard for the first time the other day. The writer, Craig Cardiff, is a 'normal' and doesn't get it...but he does give a shout out to Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep during his live shows...I guess he wrote this song after being inspired by a friend (she's a photographer for NILMDTS).

Smallest Wingless

Dear one, we've been waiting for you
Thrilled beside ourselves that you've arrived
White coats came in, heads held low
Talked for a bit, shuffled outside
We closed the curtains,
Held each other,
And cried
We said hello at the same time that we said goodbye.
And smallest and wingless
Leaving as soon as you'd arrived
But sadness is just love wasted
With no little heart to place it inside
We closed the curtains,
And held each other,
And cried
We said hello at the same time that we said goodbye.
We closed the curtains,
Held each other,
And cried
We said hello at the same time, that we said goodbye.

Click here for the song.

I don't like the middle part about sadness being love wasted. I guess I get what he is saying, but I don't really agree. It's a beautiful song otherwise.

It's not very uplifting...but sometimes I think we just need to cry. It's part of our love for our children. The sadness.
