Baby Mine

When Luke was tiny, I would often hold him close when he was crying and sing to him the lullaby from Dumbo called "Baby Mine". When I sang this song to him, it was just me and my baby boy. He would lay his little head on my chest and for a moment time would stand still and all I could see for eternity was him.

This afternoon, after a long void, Luke finally let me hold him again for a brief minute. So I sat there with my baby again and I rocked him back and forth, dried his tears, and sang our song. This, my friends, is the stuff of dreams.
