you are my sunshine my only sunshine – merry christmas

when you sang that song for me
20 + years ago now
i was laying next to you in bed
and i remember crying because i knew how special i was
for you to show me that affection and say i love you
when you grew up without it
and you were brought up to not show it
in our culture and our family it’s not something you do
but for me you did
and i cried at that moment knowing that someday it
and you and everything that means the most to me
would be gone
i was 11 and i knew it then
now i”m 33 and i still know it but now i have to face it and
i don’t want to say goodbye
memories of what was
and what will never be again
– in the many things that i’ve known and loved
i miss
and will forever miss
i wish i could go back
and live it all over again
even the bad cause those moments with you mean the most
my childhood was blessed with a grandmother who loved me
and did everything she could for me
and it hurts to look back at what you had
and see that you did not know what you had
while you had it –
and know that you will never have that again
– it doesn’t take away from the great things to come
i just miss those times
that as a child you think will always stay the same
and you never think about how drastically things change and disappear and die
and are lost with the years that creep by you ever so quickly
and i will forever miss it
and i will forever miss and love her
she always loved me and was there for me
when no one else was
-here is no home base now
there is no safe place
to fall back if needed
there is no one there now to take care of me
cause sometimes i need a little bit being taken care of
even still as an adult
we all need to know that someone cares and loves us no matter what
i love you grandma

you are my sunshine

One thought on “you are my sunshine my only sunshine – merry christmas

  1. great lyrics, could have been for some Queen song

    1) feel quite same as you, and with you, regarding ‘grandma related’ feelings; I loved Emerald (my dad’s mom) more than my own, she lived on this earth from 1900 to 1975
    2) you and your famous age of 33…when I first met you November 17(?), 2014, I thought you must be at most mid twenties, maybe max 27…so, Thus, therefore, henceforth, please stop declaring your age as such (maybe, who knows, perhaps, ?)…let people believe you are 26…? (age is just a numerical arithmetical…number…?)…for instance, personally, I am 96, but feel 16, so on and so forth, etcetera, etcetera,……. (I’m the cutest 3000 year old soul…)
