Last night Will was congested and miserable and having trouble falling back asleep. I found myself singing the medley that has helped calm her - and me - for the past 18 months.
When the night has come, and the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we see
I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
As long as you stand by me

So darlin' darlin' stand by me
Oh stand by me
Oh darlin, stand by me

And I'll be your cryin' shoulder
I'll be your lullaby
I'll be there as you grow older
I'll be the greatest fan of your life

'Cause I know
That I am, I am, I am
The luckiest
(Thanks to Ben E. King, the Goo Goo Dolls and Ben Folds for the inspiration.)
