Tomorrow, 13 years ago, my daughter was born and I learnt that it is possible to fall in love with a person in a completely different way. I was fortunate enough to be able to stay home with her for the first two years, during which time we played, slept, ate and danced together every single day – it is a time I am very grateful for and will always hold dear.
This song was the song I danced her to sleep with when she was still a tiny little baby. It is very unusual for me to have music like this anywhere near my playlist, but 1997 was also the year Titanic was released, and it was the first movie I felt brave enough to take a baby along to go see – and the song spoke to me and that love I felt for this little creature I was now responsible for and who’s existence saved my own.
