Baby Mine

This song from the movie "Beaches" has always tugged at my heartstrings. It is such a mother's truth for her child/children. Although my children are no longer infants, they will always be my babies.

Baby mine, don't you cry.
Baby mine, dry your eyes.
Rest your head close to my heart,
never to part, baby of mine.


Little one, when you play,
pay no heed what they say.
Let your eyes sparkle and shine,
never a tear, baby of mine.


If they knew all about you,
they'd end up loving you, too.
All those same people who scold you,
what they'd give just for the right to hold you.


From your hair down to your toes,
you're not much, goodness knows.
But, you're so precious to me,
sweet as can be, baby of mine.

I wish you each a very blessed Mother's Day.

Much love,

I love this song too, Katie. I knew it from Dumbo and used to sing it to Truman all the time. He doesn't really like lullaby time anymore, unfortunately. The moment when she picks Dumbo up through the bars of the cage always make me weep like a baby. I never knew it was in "Beaches" but I only saw that once. Another great glimpse into your life...thank you for sharing!
