smile for me, little one

5 Jul

A few years ago, in a very different stage of my life,

I fell in love with a song.

\”This Will Be Our Year\”became a staple in my own soundtrack,

as well an optimistic anthem for my future.

I felt that it embodied so much about my relationship,

And I can’t count the times that I’ve listen to,

And maybe even cried a bit to,

This song.

It feels like no matter what is going on,

The poetic

Hopeful

Playful

Joyful

Words just seem to seem to apply.

And now, more than ever before,

These words seem to fit perfectly

Into my new sountrack.

The soundtrack that plays when I think of where we’ve been

and how far we’ve come,

As well as the soundtrack that I sing

To my daughter,

As I lull her to sleep,

Or ask her to dance,

And for every little moment

In between.

I tried to pick an excerpt of this song to quote, and I found it impossible. Each line has a meaning for me, so, I decided to include the entire song:

The warmth of your love

is like the warmth of the sun
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

don’t let go of my hand
now darkness has gone
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

and I won’t forget
the way you held me up when I was down
and I won’t forget the way you said,
“Darling I love you”
You gave me faith to go on

Now we’re there and we’ve only just begun
This will be our year
took a long time to come

The warmth of your smile
smile for me, little one
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

You don’t have to worry
all your worried days are gone
this will be our year
took a long time to come

and I won’t forget
the way you held me up when I was down
and I won’t forget the way you said,
“Darling I love you”
You gave me faith to go on

Now we’re there and we’ve only just begun
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

Yeah we only just begun
yeah this will be our year
took a long time to come
