“The Lion Sleeps Tonight”…………

Certain songs bring back memories that have evaded me for so long. Whenever I hear “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” I am reminded of when you were three years old, Brandon. For some reason you would begin to cry and run to me whenever it came on the radio or when I would play my LP of oldies. When we discussed this years later…because when that song would come on, of course, we would go back to your reaction to it, you said you thought that maybe it had made you sad. For some reason, I always thought it scared you, but a three year old can hardly articulate their emotions, so we never really knew. I just know that I would quickly turn it off when you would begin to cry. Today that song bring tears to a mom who used to comfort you and can no longer do that.
