|My little Burkley Baby - then|
I've sung it to him on and off throughout his infant years, just randomly when I'd think of it. Recently I told him about how when he was a tiny baby in the hospital I used to sing this song to him and now he asks for it every night: "Sing My Burkley Song!"
Trouble is, I can hardly get through it without choking up! Every time I sing that melody, it's like someone blasted me back to that NICU room, to the dark nights holding my baby with cords coming out of his blankets and tubes in his nose and mouth, to me rocking him as I sing that song. And now, to think, he here is not only asking for it, but singing it along with me as he smiles up at me.
How I love this little guy.
