Somewhere Out There

Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight

Somewhere out there someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another in that big somewhere out there

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be toghether somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
it helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

I used to sing this song to TP when she was an infant. I'd be in the rocking chair, going back and forth very gently, and singing this song to her as I was feeding her a bottle. That was such a precious time in my life. This little miracle baby, in my arms, just staring at me with wonderment and love. I hope that we will each take a pause when we hear this song, or when we are looking out our window on some beautiful starry night, and think of each other while wishing upon a star. And even though we will be far apart, we are still united in our love.

Okay, I'm going to lose it now everytime I come to your page. It's very obvious that you're struggling right now and understandably so. I'm so sorry that your sweetie went to college. I'm sitting here crying knowing that your heart is breaking. I've been going through a bit of the same thing. Middle boy is a junior now and I know that it will feel like tomorrow and 2 of my 3 children will be out on their own. Where does that leave us Val? Seriously? I know that you and I feel so blessed to have had these kids in our lives and honored to be their mothers. But dang, it just hurts sometimes. Gotta go, need Kleenex.

Suffice it to say- you made me cry too.

Stacy - It leaves us with sadness, yet with gratitude and joy that they have come this far. Yes, it does hurt sometimes - and it's all worth it. I'm struggling but I'm going to be okay - this is a transition and part of the process of letting go. Thanks so much for your love and support!

Nettie - Oh, sweetie, I'm sorry. Gosh, I probably need to stop being so sentimental right now. . .

Valerie, your style of writing always captivates me as you invoke my emotion with your words. You will and are, always in my prayers.
