Callie’s 2nd Birthday

Have you ever stopped and listened to the lyrics of You Are My Sunshine?

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,
You make me happy when skies are gray,
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you,
Please don’t take my sunshine away…

To my ears, it ends with a desperate plea:  Please don’t take my sunshine away.

Why did she have to go?

The second verse:

The other night dear, as I lay sleeping,
I dreamed I held you in my arms,
But when I awoke, dear, I was mistaken,
So I hung my head and cried…

My very last thought every night for the past two years is of holding you in my arms, Callie.  As I settle into dreams, I often pretend I can see you.

Can you see me?  

2:37 a.m. this morning marked two years since your birth on January 27, 2012.  This is our song.  It is a happy song, but one with a sad ending.  I wish I could change the lyrics, but then it wouldn’t be our song anymore, would it?

Happy birthday in heaven sweet girl.  You are loved.  You are missed.  You mattered.  You were here.

Now, you are there.

…But remain forever in our hearts.
