25 Songs, 25 Days

Day 16 – A song that has made me cry

Well, this is easy. What song hasn’t made me cry, is more like it? Sometimes happy tears, but most time sad tears. And then you put a video with it, and I’m crying me a river (pun intended).

Still, there is one song that I can’t listen to without tearing up, and it is a sadness. It will be nine years in eleven days since my mother crossed over. It was something I dreaded for as long as I can remember. She was so precious to me; a loving, kind and caring woman. There wasn’t anything we didn’t walk about.¬†We shared everything under the sun, and I learned so much from her.

In 2006, Mr. Quantum and I, moved lock stock and barrel up here, to help my aging parents out. Little did I know (or anyone else for that matter) I would have only six months before she would leave her mortal coil behind, and become part of All That Is.

I can’t remember when I heard this song for the first time, but it seems like it came into my life, right at that time, and it spoke so well of my loss, and my anguish. It still does today. Mostly it speaks of how lost I still feel without her.
