You’ll Always Be..

I wake up to this song most mornings.  Lilting and a bit mournful, it reminds me of being so far from our baby girl, but still treasuring the time we’ve had with her.  We’ll always have that.

Happy 9-month birthday, Little One.

Clementine by Pink Martini

If tomorrow’s sun doesn’t shine,
if no creatures stir in the morning time.
If the clouds go still in the sky
and the days roll in and pass us by:

I will ride an elevator.
We’ll stay out till it is later.

If tomorrow’s sun doesn’t shine,
At least I’ll have my Clementine. 

If tomorrow’s moon doesn’t show,
if our dreams go lost in the winter snow;
and the flowers wither and die,
and the waterfalls run low and dry:

Will you meet me in the garden?
We’ll say “please” and “beg your pardon.”

If tomorrow’s sun doesn’t shine,
At least I’ll have my Clementine.

There’s a place that no body knows.
There’s a packing up of summer clothes.

In the lazy days of my mind,
You’ve always been my Clementine.

Clementine..
