Today I am featuring the song Love Song for My Child, one of the songs that is on the CD available from RockinGrandmaMusic.
It is about a mother who is holding her very young baby in her arms and thinking about the fun, frolic, friends, and future of her child and how this moment in time is the one in which she has him or her completely in her loving control, and about what a gift and miracle life is -about the perfection of the miracle of birth, and how incredibly small and ideal her baby is. She thinks of how soon the world will take him or her into its embrace and she will be umpire, consoler, teacher, supporter, devotee, fan, guide and so much more to this little person – but never in as much control and intimacy as right now.
In the Christian Version of this song “Love Song for Mary’s Child”– I wrote that version of the lyrics for my guitar partner Michael Lyn – and in that version, the mother is Mary and the child in her arms is baby Jesus. She feels the joy and the pain of her baby knowing that not only will she love him but millions more will too and so she knows that this moment in time is even more precious.
