Tonight as I held and rocked you in my arms, I felt my mother flow through me to enfold you as well.
I sang the same lullaby that she would sing to me:
Over in Killarney, many years ago ..
Too ra loo ra loo ra.
You looked at me, looked around, looked back wondering where the song was coming from and closed your eyes.
Too ra loo ra li
Too ra loo ra loo ra, that's an Irish Lullaby.
Blessings to all who sing to their babies.
