The First Time...

Our Rainbow daughter is a creature of habit.  Case in point, she always expects bath, movie time, then book and a song.  My husband and I take turns with her bedtime routine and though she is starting reading her favorites to us in her own way, when I am in charge of bedtime, she is not satisfied with the regular songs her Daddy has learned.  She always wants to hear one of my songs.  Tonight I felt the need to sing a new song to her, a song I sang to her brother in the womb, in the NICU, and that was played at his Memorial.  Since then, I have had trouble listening to it so my attempt at singing it to our daughter faltered.  

I am determined to sing it to her so here is my reminder, my practice so that I can deem it a song for both of them.  I promise, Lorelei, I will sing it to both of you always!  




"The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face"

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the endless skies, my love
To the dark and the endless skies

And the first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command, my love
That was there at my command, my love

And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last 'til the end of time, my love
And it would last 'til the end of time, my love

The first time ever I saw your face
Your face
Your face
Your face
