Kindred

I was never a big fan of Celine Dion. There was a song or two that I could listen to without wanting to puncture my own eardrums, but all the hubbub over Titanic...I was soooo sick of hearing that song from the movie.


Then one day I saw her on a talk show and something made me pause to listen. I knew she had a new baby and had taken time off from touring to care for her son, but I had no idea how much of a struggle it was for her to get pregnant. I could hear and sympathize with the pain in her voice as she struggled to hold back tears while talking about her infertility. She did cry when she talked about the joy when her son was born. I cried too.


Then she sang this song that she had written for her him. It was as if she had crawled into my head and wrote a song just for me (and MY son). The emotion that song evokes in me is so overwhelming, I cry every time I hear it. I love it, love it, love it.


So I thought I would share it with you. I have it queued up as this week's musical selection here in my journal. It should start after a bit once you go to my journal's main page (if you are on dialup, you will wait a very long time for the music to start...sorry Karen!)


A New Day Has Come
Celine Dion


A new day has come
A new day has... come


I was waiting for so long
For a miracle to come
Everyone told me to be strong
Hold on and don't shed a tear


Through the darkness and good times
I knew I'd make it through
And the world thought I had it all
But I was waiting for you


Hush, love


I see a light in the sky
Oh, it's almost blinding me
I can't believe
I've been touched by an angel with love


Let the rain come down and wash away my tears
Let it fill my soul and drown my fears
Let it shatter the walls for a new sun


A new day has... come


Where it was dark now there's light
Where there was pain now there's joy
Where there was weakness, I found my strength
All in the eyes of a boy


Hush, love


I see a light in the sky
Oh, it's almost blinding me
I can't believe
I've been touched by an angel with love


Let the rain come down and wash away my tears
Let it fill my soul and drown my fears
Let it shatter the walls for a new, new sun


A new day has... come


Let the rain come down and wash away my tears
Let it fill my soul and drown my fears
Let it shatter the walls for a new, new sun


A new day has... come


Ohhh, a light... OOh
