So, the other day one of the songs on my Cora playlist came on the radio. During the beginning I was musing on how little time I got with her. How it wasn't enough. I regretted failing her, not being able to give her more time here on earth. You know, mommy guilt stuff.
Anyway, the song was If I Die Young by The Band Perry, and one particular line hit me really hard:
Lord make me a rainbow, I’ll shine down on my mother
She'll know I’m safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh and
Life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no
ain't even grey, but she buries her baby
The sharp knife of a short life, well
I’ve had just enough time
It felt like she was telling me it was okay. I mean, I know it wasn't my fault, but sometimes it's good to know that she doesn't blame me.
