Godspeed

My iPod has been at the repair shop (i.e. Michael's computer) for quite a while now, which means I've really been missing my music. I have an entire playlist of children's songs from the time when I was a nanny. I've been anxious to play some of my old favorite songs for Charlie, and today I finally got that chance. {Thanks, Hubby!!}

We were all sitting in the living room, listening to the music when "Godspeed" by the Dixie Chicks came on. This one caught me completely off guard, and man did the tears fall! Amongst all the songs I've sung to Charlie, I had temporarily forgotten about the this one, an all time favorite. I remember driving down the road, literally years ago, listening to this very song, and crying as I prayed for a baby to whom I could sing this someday.



If you've never listened to these words, you should...they totally tug at my heartstrings. As we listened today, and I realized I now have my so very longed for baby, I overflowed. It's even more perfect because Charlie is the wonderful boy that he is. I'm so happy to have had this moment today, siting with my husband and our son. I don't think I'll ever forget about this song again, even for a minute!

"Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)"

Dragon tales and the "water is wide"
Pirate's sail and lost boys fly
Fish bite moonbeams every night
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

The rocket racer's all tuckered out
Superman's in pajamas on the couch
Goodnight moon, will find the mouse
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

God bless mommy and match box cars
God bless dad and thanks for the stars
God hears "Amen," wherever we are
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Godspeed
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

I have always LOVED this song! :) It's beautiful and I really love the Lullaby song they sing too. Well....most of their songs I love but that's beside the point. :)
Thanks for reminding me of this song and the power of music......i need to turn on my favorites much more often. :)

I have this song on my favorite playlist, too, and I love playing it in the car for Andrew.
